Bringing Linux to Small Business

,----[ Quote ]
| We are all impressed and excited by the 
| success of commercial Linux vendors. Red Hat, 
| Novell, Canonical, Mandriva, Oracle, and a 
| host of other Linux companies are making 
| great strides in delivering performance and 
| value to the enterprise marketplace.



Deploying Free or Open Source Software in the SMB

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenOffice 3.0 Released to Rave Reviews was written late last year, and
| OpenOffice 3.1 has since been released. However, the earlier blog does
| provide some important background for those who have not heard of it. Of
| course, productivity software is more than just Office suites, and I also
| suggested a possible replacement for Adobe's PDF Reader in A Free Alternative
| to Adobe Reader.
| Finally, folks facing strong resistance towards change in their SMBs might
| want to consider settling for a partial or gradual switch. Find out more
| about this idea in Do a Partial Switch to Open Source Solution.


SMEs lead in adoption of open software

| THERE is growing interest in open source
| software (OSS) in Singapore, led by
| demand from small and medium
| enterprises.


How Open Source Can be SMB Friendlier

,----[ Quote ]
| What a typical open source vendor today will do, he said, is try to sell
| their product based on it being cheaper than a Microsoft Windows deployment,
| for example. But where that goes wrong is how it is viewed by the tech-wary
| SMB user who doesnât have a big IT shop to do the work. âFrom their view, it
| would be more expensive because they would need training to do itâ using open
| source, rather than sticking with Windows and what they already know and are
| familiar with, he said.
