TCO: Total Cost of Ownership – a case for Linux in

Anonymous Reader writes "Amidst the brouhaha over the Microsoft sponsored study that reflected the act that âin the long run, the TCO for systems running Linux as OS would be considerably higher than ones running on MS platformsâ, one item that got lost is the usage of the word TCO. TCO as defined by the above mentioned IDC study relates to the cost of ownership, however in this case the author would like to evaluate TCO as Total Cost of Operations and thus extrapolate the inherent benefits of schools switching their networks over to a more viable and cost effective Linux based setup."
