IT Management's Matt Hartley
the effects of the recent economic woes on Linux adoption.
"Considering the state of the US finances, I would point out that spending money on a computer pre-loaded with an OS that can be, even to this date with Vista, hit with malware with little to stop it seems rather foolish to me.
Now consider industries where the bulk needs of a workstation can adequately be upheld with most common Linux distributions. Unfortunately the joy might stop there if that company is already using an in-house IT staff.
Why? Because so many of them here in the States are Windows only, thus making a switch to a new platform a move to fire and rehire your IT staff.
