"As I read the review, I noticed it had a direct attack
upon my choice for running Linux in the network. Following are
several quotes (italics were added by me):
"...a Linux based file server utilizing SAMBA s the tool for
file and print sharing. While this is a lower cost alternative and
perhaps a good way to introduce file and print sharing, it is
recommended that a longer-term strategy would be to move away from
Linux to a Microsoft Windows server platform. Microsoft Windows is
recognized as the "industry standard" for file and print."
"...a Linux (Red Hat V7.1) server to support SMTP based
e-mail... ...For a small company like , running SMTP on a Linux
system is not a bad choice for getting started... A better practice
would be to install two Microsoft Exchange servers . ...It is
suggested that a longer term strategy be developed for a more
feature rich email system as MS-Exchange."
