"If the attendance of last week's European Linux Conference in London is any indicator, European countries seem ready to adopt Linux at a quicker pace than businesses and investors here in the U.S. The vendor-neutral conference featured talks and comments by a number of Linux notables."

"SuSE and IBM jointly hosted the conference, which presented the Open Source operating system (OS) as a viable desktop alternative in the corporate world and a continuing powerhouse in the corporate server market, according to a SuSE corporate statement."

"Since the conference was specifically designed to be vendor-neutral, the statistics presented to illustrate Linux's adoption by businesses and investment viability were likewise generic. Adam Wood of Deutsche Bank stated that investors are comfortable with the Linux model. Wood went on to comment that in Europe, the Open Source movement has a proven track record, and that a comfort level with Linux in mission-critical environments has been achieved."
