Why Linux made inroads at finanical institutions

Anonymous Reader points out an article that was published at FT.com: "When the loss of about 1,000 computer servers in the World Trade Center attacks put Lehman Brothers in the market to buy millions of dollars of systems, it looked at a slightly unorthodox option: Linux, an operating system that is as noteworthy for its speed as for the fact that its source code is free.

Now that it has tested a Linux system in-house, Lehman plans to replace about half of the lost servers with ones that use this technology."
