Dutch govt ends exclusive MS upgrade talks
 
Follwup on this story

The Dutch government has abandoned its negotiations with Microsoft over an ambitious plan to upgrade more than 260,000 workstations and servers.

Despite a unanimous vote by the Dutch parliament in 2002 to adopt open standards and open source software, Microsoft recently opened exclusive negotiations with the Dutch government regarding a major software upgrade. After Dutch IT weekly newspaper Automatisering Gids leaked details about the 157m ($210m) deal, Dutch MPs demanded an explanation as to why there hadn't been a mandatory public bid.
