Linux can solve desktop management woes
A recent survey by IMRB for Network Magazine's Infrastructure Strategies 2005 found that many enterprises have already made considerable investments in open source. Linux is widely used for messaging and databases, to name just two applications. According to the survey, almost 39 percent of the enterprises that participated had their servers on Linux.
At Technology Senate 2005, under the Effective Desktop Management Strategy track, Novell promoted an alternative to Microsoft for desktop management that could possibly help in reducing the desktop investment part of the IT budget of an organization.
