Linux India: The Corporate Linux FAQ

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.”
