Both me and my girlfriend are excited about Munich's move. Similar to
the Spanish government, the Turkish government also seems to be
interested in adopting desktop linux (called "Pardus") in their offices.
They started implementing it in some military offices.

I perceive it interesting that each government prefers to have its own
Linux distro instead of going with a major distro. But that's offtopic ;)

As per Edubuntu, it is oriented towards children though. I am guessing a
university or a library wouldn't need a special ubuntu derivative? or
maybe a library would need a thin client Ubuntu oriented towards
average-age people. Uhm, I still can't grasp how a "thin client" works,
so I don't know what I am talking about at this point :)

Thanks for the feedback :)

Or (though you might like Rodin) you might as well avoid "The Gates of
Hell" and use Linux.
