critical customer service application on an
operating system that's almost completely untried

Why Linux? Sun says the open source
operating system has shown itself to be reliable,
adept at handling multiple applications and
inexpensive. Sun rejected far more prevalent
handheld operating systems, such as Windows
CE and Palm OS, for a variety of ideological
and technical reasons."
