Infoworld reports on the Valentines day gift to IT shops that has been delivered by some Open Source players on the question of Linux versus Windows. The report makes compelling reading here and here. The bottom line is that just on administrative tasks Linux has a distinct advanatge. This is the area which Windows people report so much advantage – and of course conveniently ignore the constant stream of Security problems and certainly do not take into account the huge number of change-overs that VISTA will present to OS desktop and Server systems users.
This is a must reading – just do the comparisons with Microsofts studies and make up your own mind.
