"A bank in Croatia is using Linux for its development
platform. Here's the story...."
"More and more users needed Internet access, and we needed a
dial-on-demand router. We didn't want specialized hardware. We
wanted to be able to customise logs, schedule access time on a
per-user basis and use an existing PC for that purpose."
"After a week running NT Workstation with WinGate demo, we gave
up. WinGate used to die two or three times a day. That would not be
a problem in and of itself, since it was a demo anyway, but the COM
port stayed locked every time it happened, remaining locked until
reboot. Obviously, NT did not release allocated resources after
process termination. Well, it did not look like a serious operating
system to us."
"Linux came in our focus accidentally. A friend of mine did
quite a bit of advocacy and convinced me to try it, giving me
precise directions and a Slackware 3.2 CD. Why not? If it works,
fine; if it doesn't, it costs me nothing. After all, I am an
experienced UNIX administrator--I can do it. So I took a 486 with a
1GB SCSI disk and 16MB RAM and started to play with Linux."
