"Why would a company consider switching to Linux?"
"The days of "one size fits all" are gone. No one (apart from maybe Microsoft) is actually propagating the one-OS idea anymore. IS people are more concerned about using the right tools for the right job. Their biggest concern is inter-operation between various platforms, and OSs like Solaris (on Sun machines), OS/400 (on IBM AS/400 systems), and others recognize and cater to this. As does Linux, which happily cooperates with just about any OS under the Sun, including Windows."
"Now you know that the phrase "switching to Linux" is not really appropriate. A company should start using Linux in conjunction with other operating systems."
