ComputerWorld: Linux: Not yet ready for the enterprise, report says

“The open-source nature of the Linux operating system — hailed
by enthusiasts as one of its primary advantages — could stymie
developers in their attempts to make the operating system suitable
for enterprise use, according to a study released today.”

“D. H. Brown Associates Inc., in Port Chester, N.Y., compared
the enterprise capabilities of Red Hat Software Inc.’s Linux 5.2
and Caldera Inc.’s Open Linux 2.2 to six “conventionally developed”
operating systems: IBM’s AIX, Compaq Computer Corp.’s Tru64 Unix,
Hewlett-Packard Co.’s HP-UX, Silicon Graphics Inc.’s Irix, Sun
Microsystems Inc.’s Solaris 7 and Microsoft Corp.’s Windows NT
Server 4.0 Enterprise Edition.”
