Forbes Says Linux is Not Just for Geeks Anymore

Whenever a magazine that is widely read by the business elite publishes an article about Linux, it's important to read it. This week, Forbes Magazine is running an article called Linux is Not Just For Geeks Anymore. The article says that Lehman Brothers "expects to save more than $10 million a year within 18 months, by using Linux" to replace servers running Solaris from Sun Microsystems.

The strategy is to replace Solaris servers only on applications that are proven to run well under Linux. Presumably, that would mean applications like web and email servers. One application the article specifically says that Lehman will not be running on Linux is enterprise databases.
