"Three years ago, Linux was really the only option for Emmanuel Briand and his co-founders of iParadigms, Oakland, Calif...."
"IParadigms runs an online service for schools and colleges that allows institutions to check submitted essays and papers for plagiarism. Students upload their papers to the company's site, Turnitin.com. They papers are checked using a special algorithm for similarities to previously submitted papers and to others stored in the company's database."
"Originally, Linux was a temporary fix, Briand said. When their business grew, they planned to move to another system. But as the years went by, the Linux system served them very well so they kept with it ultimately winding up with SuSE distributions. Today, iParadigms has 15 servers all running Linux."
