CRN: Popularity Contest -- Linux Hot With E-Business SetMar 21, 2000, 18:52 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Edward F. Moltzen, John Roberts)
"In a CRN survey of 200 solution providers, 49 percent said they will be deploying more e-business solutions on the Linux platform. Forty-one percent said their Linux deployments will stay the same, 8 percent said they were not sure and 2 percent said they expect to deploy fewer e-business solutions on Linux."
"Linux is a good operating system, and it's going to gain wider acceptance," said William McCrary, a technical engineer with Earthworks Inc., an Olive Branch, Miss.-based solution provider. "[However], it still has to prove itself at the corporate desktop level," he said."
"Linux is the low-cost open-source platform being offered as an option by several major system vendors, but it still trails Windows as the preferred e-business platform. However, that gap is closing quickly, solution providers said."
"In fact, 38 percent of solution providers said they currently prefer to deploy e-business solutions on the Linux platform, with 43 percent saying they prefer Windows."
