The state of corporate IT: A case for Linux

Author: JT Smith

AnandTech has a story making a case for Linux in the corporate environment. "Change does not always have to be a frightening thing, and it is always a good idea to have
alternatives at your disposal in the corporate world. Having 'all your eggs in one basket' has been
considered a risky proposition for a lot longer than computers have been around, but the principle
is still sound and timely. In the case of the company we used as a basis for this example, thinking
outside the box paid off.

As a result of their willingness to look beyond, they now have a more cost-effective, more stable
and more predictable infrastructure in place. They have been able to benefit from the hard work of
the Linux community and the support of companies like Red Hat."
