You'd be surprised.   I've visited the Limux guys in
Munich, and although they did test and use Wine,
they had very little time to devote to it.  I helped
them file Wine bugs, don't know if they would have
without help.  I don't know much about the Vienna
effort.  I did make contact with them in 2006, but
they didn't seem that interested in Wine at the time.
I emailed them again today, perhaps they're more
interested now.

Vienna, like Munich, isn't monolithic.  There are people
and parties who support the migration in both cases,
and those who oppose it.   It's a continual tug-of-war.
