The State Of Linux Desktop Functionality

,----[ Quote ]
| The next statement that keeps cropping up is that Linux has 
| awful hardware detection and support. Unfortunately for those 
| making this claim, it really depends on your perspective. 
| Nearly everything you hook up to a modern Linux distro will 
| work out of the box.


10 Reasons to use Linux for Enterprise Business

,----[ Quote ]
| For a year now the information technology sector has been 
| suffering under the global economic recession. At this 
| juncture, setting up a network system for any organization 
| could be highly expensive. Linux is an open source OS and edges 
| over it arch rival Windows in several instances when it comes 
| to business. Apart from the fact that they are generally free, 
| Linux is more secure, reliable and customizable than other 
| proprietary counterparts. Some of the most renowned companies 
| in the world, including the bigshots like Amazon, Google, and 
| Yahoo, run their servers with Linux rather than Windows.



Linux in the Corporate Environment on the Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| For those of you who don't know what Linux is, there are plenty of articles explaining
| its history to a great extent, but essentially, its an alternative Operating System that
| runs on computers capable of running Windows. There are multiple variants of Linux
| (Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian) but essentially the core of the system is very similar and from
| a desktop interaction perspective, there are some common interfaces to them all. Gnome
| and KDE being the two dominant GUIs.


Desktop-Linux Can Shape Enterprise Cost

,----[ Quote ]
| As enterprises are actively moving their business into remote cloud model,
| only standard interfaces are required on the desktop to access the data in
| the cloud. This can potentially open a window (pun not intended) for the IT
| department to train its employees in free software such as Linux, with the
| double benefit of adding expertise to its employees and slaying unnecessary
| IT investments.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
