the use of Linux by the financial firm Morgan Stanley.
"Anthony Golia, executive director of enterprise computing at Morgan Stanley, told attendees at the High Performance Linux on Wall Street show this morning that his firm has been using Linux in a big way since 2001.
"We use it because it performs well on inexpensive, commodity hardware," Golia said. "That continues to be true and that continues to be a reason we use it."
Golia said Morgan Stanley likes the open source Linux operating system, for one thing, because whenever a bug emerges, "there's a large and diverse group of minds looking at how to fix it."
