> Just wanted to point you towards a new (free) study that your Linux user
> group might find interesting.
> Tomorrow a.m., research firm Enterprise Management Associates will release
> an independent "Get the Truth on Linux Management" report (co-sponsored by
> OSDL and Levanta) -- which analyzes feedback from more than 200
> organizations running Linux, and surveys the time / money required to manage
> Linux systems.
> The report is now availalable for free download at:
> As you know -- for years, Microsoft has poured millions of marketing dollars
> into sponsored studies that assert that Linux is "tough to manage" and "high
> touch." Microsoft's "Get the Facts" campaign
> (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/facts/default.mspx) says that
> these management costs of Linux create a higher total cost of ownership that
> makes the OS less attractive than Windows.
> But the findings in "Get the Truth on Linux Management" show that not only
> is Linux no more difficult to manage than Windows -- in many cases, users
> running mixed (Linux and Windows) environments are finding Linux to be more
> manageable than Windows.
