Linux Up 600 On Wall Street
The New York Stock Exchange — the granddaddy of financial markets — has decided to give UNIX the shove and move to Linux, starting with 600 severs tasked with handling the exchange's millions of transactions per minute.
The move comes as a major public relations boon for Linux, with the NYSE publicly declaring Linux stable enough to undertake the operations of the world's largest stock exchange. The exchange's Chief Information Officer indicated that Linux's ability to provide flawless execution and fast transaction speed, coupled with it's reliability, makes it the best match for the NYSE's needs.
