“But for Linux to reach its full promise, more applications are
needed, users and analysts said. For now, Linux is most commonly
used as a specialized, departmental server for scores or hundreds
of users. One of the largest Linux installations to date is at
Cisco Systems Inc. in San Jose, where 117 Linux servers handle
roughly 200,000 print jobs per day for about 30,000 users, said Ben
Woodard, print systems manager.”

“Large corporations are using Linux for Web, file-and-print and
E-mail servers, on development workstations and to run custom
applications that don’t require more than a simple interface.”
