Whitehall embraces Tux?

Excuse me whilst the geek in me rushes to the surface. You see, I may be a political anorak but in my spare time I'm a professional geek in the IT industry, so when I heard the news that the Office of Government Commerce is to trial Sun's Java Desktop Linux I understandably got excited. Sticking a finger up to Microsoft and moving away from their oppressively expensive licensing model can only be a good thing, especially in Government. Now what we really need is to get them using Slackware instead of Sun.
