Linux Is Not Ready For the Enterprise (Opinion)
Linux and other open source projects require too much customization, and doubts about the legitimacy of open source code could get users tangled up in lawsuits. Besides, many Linux supporters are a bunch of potty-mouthed malcontents. Enterprises are better off staying away from Linux and open source -- or at least thinking through the possible liabilities
So says Rob Enderle of Forrester Research. Rob has a lot of good points which echo some of the thoughts I've expressed. The illusion that Linux is a more robust, secure and enterprise-ready operating system as compared to Windows is false. Read it and see what you think.
