Derided as a passing fad in its early years, Linux has since grown at such a pace that technology giants like IBM and Oracle are endorsing it, and Microsoft has had to sit up and take notice. A number of organisations in the country are increasingly using Linux, whether it is IRCTC for vendor management, financial and HR management systems on Red Hat Linux; IDBI Bank for financial management, HRMS (ERP) and e-banking; or BSNL (Chennai) for its billing applications. All these use Linux to run their core applications. Indeed, Linux has become a popular option for mail-servers, proxies and firewalls.
