NWfusion.com steps back and looks at the gains Linux is making. "Despite the hype and the fears, Linux and other open source software have
made serious gains in corporate IT shops. The strength of the technology is real,
enterprise users and analysts proclaim, and vendor giants such as IBM,
Hewlett-Packard and Compaq are betting heavily on Linux and investing
billions of dollars in open source software development to make it even stronger.
And more is on the way, from the enterprise-class products coming at this
week's LinuxWorld show to improved symmetric
multiprocessing (SMP) support that could come in the next year."
