Showtime for Linux

With The SCO Group's licensing issues roiling in the background and Microsoft demonstrating a Linux alternative, IT professionals aren't distracted
and are expected to do more than just window-shop this week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York.

"We're looking into what Linux can do for us in terms of real-time performance as opposed to more-expensive proprietary operating systems," says Hank
DeGregorio, a senior engineering staff member at Lockheed Martin who will attend the show. Lockheed Martin, which uses Linux clusters in its product
development, is evaluating embedded Linux as a future component of its products.
