I love how people cannot read anymore. South Korea announced they are considering switching to Linux for their fleet of government PCs, IF it proves possible to do. Note the "if". Of course, illiterate journalists went to write headlines like "S.Korea Dumps Windows!".

and the relevant point: "Before the government-wide adoption, the ministry said it would test if the system could be run on private networked devices without security risks and if compatibility could be achieved with existing websites and software which have been built to run on Windows.

Note that "compatibility with Windows" as a requirement is never something that goes 100% well. Expect surprises along the way.
