Red Hat Linux rises over Chicago
,----[ Quote ]
| The City of Chicago had always been a Sun shop, but when it was time to
| begin a hardware replacement cycle two years ago, platform architect Amy
| Niersbach knew the city needed to reduce costs without sacrificing
| quality. That's why she turned to Linux.
| Niersbach has some advice for other city governments considering a move
| from proprietary infrastructures to Linux. "Do a proof of concept so that
| you feel completely comfortable. Some people just need to see it happening,
| as opposed to hearing from other people that it will work. We were very
| satisfied with the results."
