For the last few years, and especially in the current economic climate, many businesses are opting to use Linux to reduce their licensing and development costs. By doing this, they have realized that Linux offers other benefits aside from just cutting expenses: Linux users enjoy a robust, flexible and adaptable Operating System with a great choice of tools for productivity and business applications. As any other software, Linux deployments are subject to copyright, trademarks, patents, etc. This sometimes constitutes a real challenge, when it shouldn't be.

They will discuss before European and American audiences some of the challenges that governments, enterprises, education, and all kinds of organizations face when decide to migrate to Linux.
