Once again, linus strikes at the bread and butter of the Unix biz! To
"The bank is migrating all of its 8,000 UNIX workstation clients to Red
Hat Desktop. In this project BPU Banca will replace Sun hardware with
Intel-based PCs to achieve combined hardware and software cost savings
of about 50%.
The migration of its systems from UNIX to Red Hat Enterprise Linux also
delivers vendor independence for both hardware and software, assuring
BPU Banca greater flexibility when implementing infrastructure solutions
that comply with new industry trends and best practices. Finally, the
migration will enable the use of PCs in dual-boot mode to support Linux
and Microsoft Windows without additional cost. "
Looks like Mr. Softee will get his Windows licenses, used in dual boot,
whereas Mr. McNealy will have to do completely without! Too bad, Scott!
