Chilean pension system switches to Linux
Author: JT Smith
An article (in Spanish -- or Babelfished into English) at ElMostrador.cl reports that the Chilean Public Pension System (INP) has switched its computer systems to Linux. That deployment covers almost 1,500 computers in 73 INP offices around the country, supporting a system used by 2/3 of the national population. INP expects to save USD $67,000 now that it has freed itself from software licensing payments.
