Sep 23, 2020 at 19:17 comment added Austin Hemmelgarn @pavelsaman At the scale of most government supply contracts, the government can get whatever the hell they want on their computers. The issue is good support from hardware vendors for actually running Linux on their hardware and support from major applications for running on Linux (though that is getting better thanks to web apps). Windows gets used because it just works, not because it's the default offering for consumer retail sales of computer hardware.
Sep 23, 2020 at 18:35 comment added pavelsaman Hopefully soon. But until HW vendors start delivering their end-user laptops/computers with Linux, this is far from reality. The default is still Windows, and only sometimes you can ask for like Ubuntu on Dell machines and perhaps some other exceptions.

Sep 22, 2020 at 12:37 comment added mishan Pretty much yes. There is some push now that the new edge browser is out and even the head honchos noticed here in Czech Republic, but the smaller town/village councils still use hand-me-downs consisting of phased out governmental hardware. There are still Windows XP computers and people wih internet explorer 7 connecting to our applications from small vilages - although that's single digit number of cases. And we're central europe.
