Should you dump Unix for Linux?

| One of the biggest selling points of Linux is its ability

| as the big iron.
| With some flavors of Unix, you're forced to buy the
| vendor's associated hardware (at a premium price). Almost
| all Linux distributors do not sell hardware, so there's
| no hardware lock-in. With Linux, however, you may have
| limited peripheral choices on the client side because
| of the scarcity of drivers for some Linux distros.
| (Note: Some hardware vendors do package their own Linux
| distros with their servers or PCs.)
| Don't think that Linux is just for small applications in
| departments. Linux is definitely an enterprise solution
| option for all types of server consolidation and
| migration projects.
