yt100 writes "Although Linux is making inroads into the infrastructure layer of Wall Street, does open source enjoy the same success beyond Linux?
The evidence is mixed, according to a panel discussion during the Linux On Wall Street in New York.
"Linux has proven that on the operating systems side, there is a comfort level with open source. The same can be said of Eclipse with developer tools," said Monica Kumar, Oracle's senior director of product marketing for Linux and Open Source. "Do customers have the same level of comfort when it comes to CRM or ERP? We don't think so.""
