I guess most if not everyone out there know that Governments use Windows 
XP (Uk Gov't) and that it costs quite a huge amount to pay in bulk 
licenses, including local councils. Does anyone know how much these bulk 
licenses cost and how many the UK Gov't have?

Well, onto the main reason I am posting - I have sent an email to my 
local MP to look into using a Linux based OS instead of Windows as they 
wont need to pay for licenses which will presumably save hundreds of 

Why not send an email to your local MP or the MP that deals with the IT 
or whoever it is that does.

What's your thoughts on this?
