“All of those cost-cutting changes point suspiciously
to Linux.

“Virtualization – With the exception of Microsoft’s Hyper-V, all
virtualization solutions are Linux or Unix-based: KVM, Xen, VMware,
Solaris Zones, OpenVZ and QEMU. It’s obvious from this list that
Linux is the preferred technology for virtualization and saving
money. Microsoft’s attempt at serving its penny-penching customers
is a “too little, too late” scenario, which is one reason they’re
giving it away with Windows Server 2008 and offering some free
licensing along with it. True wallet watchers will deploy
Linux-based technologies for real savings over the long haul.”
