    Wall Street Embraces Linux

    Imagine that, a huge, global financial institution moving over to Linux! It's nice to see such a large company embracing the Source!

    I think we will be seeing more of this, as companies begin to see the real cost of using Micro$oft products.

    Yes, indeed we will. Especially since M$ has gotten greedier with every passing year. It almost makes it a no-brainer to use Linux .

    Pretty soon, Windows will actually cost more than the computers it runs on. Many people predict that this will be when Windows falls over and everybody starts looking for an alternative to it.

    I don't really care one way or another if M$ goes under, but I think that it would be a sad day when it does (mostly because we will lose such a large target to plink at ). In many computers today the cost of windows is nearly a quarter to a third of the price of the computer. That's not cool.

    Don't worry, there will be other closed source vendors once MS is gone

    Re: Wall Street Embraces Linux

    But there are risks in putting so much behind Linux. For starters, there are legal implications. Does anybody own the intellectual property of the "open-source" software? How exposed are companies to patent violation?

    Even more important, who is accountable? Linux is an amalgamation of the input of many companies and individual software engineers. So whom do you call when it breaks? Also, contrary to popular belief, Linux is not really "free." How are large-scale licensing agreements to be worked out?
    Exposure to patent violations ?
    Large-scale licensing agreements ?


    What happened to free, as in beer ?
