"5. Licensing - You won't burn a bunch of money on
licensing your operating system or paying out all your hard-earned
profits on client access licenses. Play it smart in '09 and save
those license fees for something worthwhile like much-deserved
employee bonuses, training, or even employee retention.
"6. Performance - Quick question. Which operating system
performs better on commodity hardware than any other available
system today? You guessed correctly if you said Linux. Stellar
performance is why Cloud Computing companies like Amazon.com use it
for their platform of choice. Need great performance for your
Oracle database? Ask Oracle about their Linux solutions."
