"Housing New Zealand is considering replacing its Microsoft
Windows NT servers with the Linux operating system after the
success of a pilot project at its Mt Albert branch..."
"The selection of Linux has proved something of a master stroke
because the pilot has demonstrated the substantial licence fees,
upgrades and maintenance costs inherent in the previous NT-based
approach can all now be side-stepped," Mr Herries said..."
"The system has been running since July 1 as a file and print
server, application server and internet gateway, without a crash.
It has been running Oracle since August 1."
