​ has published an interesting article, ​
​*French police move from Windows to Ubuntu Linux* (
​, over at ZDNet. It deals explicitly with a migration from Windows XP
to a
«customized version of Ubuntu Linux», but if, as I presume, LO is
as the standard office suite, it is significant for us as well. Anyone
familiar with the details ?...

They use LibreOffice since some times now. You may have also seen that
MIMO is part of our Advisory Board, it represents several ministries in
France which are using LibreOffice. See this announcement:
Ministry of Defense is participating here.

Kind regards

​Thanks, Sophie - that is, indeed, what I surmised, but it could have been
otherwise, as Brian's message above, which shows that MSO was replaced by
OOO before the move to a new operating system took place, indicates​.
Still, it seems reasonable that if a version of Ubuntu were to be
installed, the default office suite found there would be used, rather than
being replaced by AOO, which simply would introduce a complication without
any corresponding benefits. Good, at any rate, to be able to replace
speculation with knowledge....
