Linux to Windows: a corporate success story
Rudd-O writes "I frequently hear complaints about CIOs in other companies. Complaints directed straight at Microsoft Windows. I've seen people go blue in the face when complaining about the assorted kinds of malware they've had to remove from the networks they manage. But the mere suggestion of migrating to Linux, directed at those CIOs, is enough to trigger a bunch of emotional responses on them. "Our users won't go along", "We depend too much on Office to make the switch", "Linux costs more in the end" are common responses. Today, I'll be telling the story of our own migration to Linux. As you can probably infer from the title of this story, it's been a success."
