How to sell Linux to IT consulting clients
,----[ Quote ]
| In such a Windows-centric world, pitching
| Linux to clients who are not tech savvy is
| not as hard as you might think â you just
| have to know the product and know where (and
| how) the product fits into the clientâs
| infrastructure. Here are some examples.
| Let clients try Linux
| If a client wants to play around with Linux
| to see if it will fit their needs, a really
| good approach is to give the client a Live CD
| of a distribution and tell them to boot it
| up. The Live instance will not change their
| current OS, and they could get easily get an
| idea if Linux will work. You can take this
| one step further by rolling your own Live CD
| (with a tool such as SUSE Studio) and adding
| your branding to the desktop, as well as to
| applications you think the client will want
| and/or need.
What is the Best Distribution of Linux?
,----[ Quote ]
| Linux comes in a wide variety of flavors,
| better known as distributions. Such an
| array can make choosing between them very
| difficult for both the experienced
| administrator as well as the new user
| migrating from a different operating system.
| Making a decision isnât easy, but we will do
| our best to simplify the process of
| selecting the ideal Linux distribution for
| your needs.
