Over at CNET, Matt Asay discusses the recent news about the New York Stock Exchange rolling out more Linux
and less proprietary UNIX. "For those who believe they need to earn their living and make the difficult decisions that turn IT into a functional part of one's business, however, there are better options. Open source is one of them, of course, but it need not be the exclusive option. Sometimes a proprietary system will better fit a CIO's requirements. That's fine. But the point is that it should be the CIO who makes that decision, not the vendor.
