Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"With the conversion of the Hotel Jan III Sobieski, a four-star
hotel in Warsaw, Poland, Linux advocates have another example to
cite in touting Linux's power outside the IT department...."
"The business world wants to see examples of Linux running
mundane but essential jobs such as word processing, invoicing,
accounting, payroll, and inventory management. Only then will we
see substantial growth in Linux outside of IT departments. Is it
possible to run an entire business on Linux? Sure. The story of the
Hotel Jan III Sobieski proves it."
"Poland may not be the first place you'd look to find
interesting Linux implementations. Nevertheless, Tux is alive and
well in the land that only 10 years ago was called the "happiest
barrack in the communist camp." You can find Linux hard at work in
many new technology companies, as well as in the IT departments of
many companies listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange."
