"Linux has technical strength and industry momentum,
but several obstacles remain before the Unix clone will penetrate
the deepest parts of corporate computing, Compaq Computer Chief
Technology Officer Shane Robison said Tuesday.
"The No. 1 reason corporations are hesitant to deploy Linux in
the enterprise surrounds the very nature of the open-source model,"
Robison said at the opening keynote address at the LinuxWorld
Conference and Expo.
Specifically, corporations worry about the large number of
companies and individuals responsible for various Linux components,
he said. "Linux lacks a one-stop point of contact."
