"Netproject has got together a consortium of organisations, including the NCC, CCTA, The Technical Infrastructure Forum, IBM CUA, Compaq CUAs , HP CUAs, The Scottish Software Federation, CHEST, The UK Unix User Group to jointly run and promote a series of workshops on Linux, Open Source and E-Commerce."

This is because the cost of installing and supporting Linux systems is a fraction of equivalent systems using proprietary technology."
