Linux Expands Horizons

Richard Voaden, IBM north region Linux software sales manager, says Linux is well on the way to getting over the stigma of not being good enough for
mission-critical applications. "IBM is beginning to deploy it in that way in manufacturing and financial trading."

Voaden says about 44% of Linux servers are replacing servers that formerly used other operating systems because Linux is much more cost-effective. He
points out that Linux enables companies to exploit commodity hardware from Intel rather than specialised hardware from a Unix provider.
