It turns out that the Linux doubters were wrong. Today Linux has become the hottest thing in corporate America since e-mail and maybe even Windows itself. Yes, most of the Linux IPOs are out of business or on the verge of going bust. Yes, few really believe Linux will ever replace Windows on the desktop. But on the back end, on servers in data centers rather than PCs on desktops, companies like Boeing, Amazon.com, E*Trade Financial, DreamWorks, Google, and virtually every major Wall Street firm have either finished reconfiguring big chunks of their servers to run Linux or are in the process of doing so. General Motors says it is likely to do the same in a year or so. Even the Chinese and German governments, along with about two dozen other countries, are taking a look at how they can save money by using Linux in their infrastructures...
Yeah, I was over reading the Red Hat whitepages, and they've gotten Google, Amazon, Toyota, one of the largest Italian news papers, and a whole lot more companies to go with Red Hat. This is truly amazing stuff.
Of course, what a lot of people fail to mention, is that most of these companies are migrating from a BSD or Solaris setup to Linux, mostly to cut costs. Not very many companies are taking the dive from a Windows based backend to a Linux based back end.
It's only a matter of time though I think, and it's a very exciting time to be a Linux user/admin/advocate.
