Cybersource has published a
new total cost of ownership study (PDF) comparing Windows and Linux
deployments. Despite having given several advantages to Windows, the study
concludes that switching to Linux is 36% cheaper if existing hardware is
used, and 26% cheaper if new hardware is part of the switch. The savings
are less (but still significant) if the Red Hat Enterprise products (and
associated support contracts) are purchased.
