Replace Oracle with the NoSQL Engagement Database: Why and how leading companies are making the switch REGISTER >
This isn't the first time we've linked to a story about J.S. Wurzler Underwriting Managers: they turned up on The Register over a month ago. This article provides a little more depth, and a few choice quotes from the company and others regarding why Linux is a good choice to make if the 25% increase the company charges NT shops for "hacking insurance" isn't incentive enough.
"Wurzler found that system administrators working on open source systems tend to be better trained and stay with their employers longer than those at firms using Windows software, where turnover can exceed 33 percent per year. That turnover contributes to another problem: System administrators are not implementing all the patches that have been issued for Windows NT, Wurzler said.
