The Proper Image for Linux
I just received a note from the person who sparked the original survey. He reports:
I took my “hand-me-down” Linux box, an unimpressive 75MHz Pentium with 64MB RAM and a tiny 600MB HD to work. My boss was amazed that office applications such as StarOffice were available and was quite impressed when I read a Word document with StarOffice and then converted it to HTML. Samba was another revelation. Overall performance impressed him. In a few crude tests, it outperformed a “commercial” system running with 128MB RAM, dual 200MHz processors and all ultra-fast/ultra-wide SCSI drives.
After a couple of callers indicated an interest in UNIX versions, we checked the price of current systems. My boss decided Linux was indeed priced right, and asked me to start on a port.
It looks like we've won one more away from the dark side.
