Australian DMV switches to Macs

One small step for Apple. An article from ComputerWorld Australia that details plans by the DMV (called the RTA, Road and Traffic Authority) in New South Wales, Australia.

Cause appears to be an intentional move to open source by the government there.

From the article, "Apple OSX 10.3 was the major advantage sought as it fit neatly into the Unix-based registry network. [The] cost of the machines was comparable to machines being offered by other vendors. [The] technical capability of [the] iMacs was superior and users definitely preferred the ergonomic design and look and feel of the terminal."
