Linux On Wall Street Is Not An Oxymoron. Or Is It?  

,----[ Quote ]
| So is Linux on Wall Street an oxymoron? Of course it's not.
| Linux has staunch supporters on the street who are making money
| with it and are recognizing the inherent benefits of the model.
| Linux, which is by definition free software, is not necessarily
| free without price or without the potential for profit.
| Wall Street is all about money, and Linux has proven -- and will
| continue to prove -- that it is a worthy tool in the quest to
| generate even more money. 


Red Hat's Real Time Coming Sooner Than Later  

,----[ Quote ]
| Real Time Linux will be available to Red Hat customers sooner than had
| been originally expected, but unlike many Red Hat innovations, the new
| Real Time capabilities will not show up first in Red Hat's Fedora
| community Linux distribution.


Linux Crossing Threshold to Real Mission Critical Computing

,----[ Quote ]
| ...Linux developers are steadily chipping away at the most
| significant functional gaps that limited its suitability for
| these workloads in the past, allowing it to progress far beyond the
| "edge of network" domain where it has traditionally thrived. The
| impressive wins by Novell and Red Hat prove that user perceptions
| about Linux's limitations are gradually crumbling as well.


Linux in 2006: June is Busting Out All Over
