Retailers Put Linux on Their Holiday Wish List

,----[ Quote ]
| Continuous uptime is critical in a retail 
| environment. Known for its high availability, 
| Linux has proven capable of staying up for 
| years at a time. For many retailers, Microsoft 
| Windows' security vulnerabilities are a serious 
| concern. Linux is an established choice for 
| business computing, and provides stronger 
| security to prevent data loss and downtime. 
| Because it is open source software backed by 
| leading IT providers such as IBM, HP and Intel, 
| many developers are working on it all the time, 
| allowing bugs and security flaws to be detected 
| and fixed more quickly than with proprietary 
| operating systems.
