Banks look at Linux switch

LINUX and open-source software have a big future -- at Microsoft's expense -- in at least two of Australia's four big banks.

The ANZ Bank is yet to show its cards.

Westpac and NAB are evaluating Linux on the desktop, as well as open-source alternatives for their back-end IT operations.
