Linux on the Corporate Desktop: Success with Kanotix
I work for a company called De Bortoli Wines in Australia. We're a manufacturing company (winemakers if you hadn't guessed) with 10 sites Australia-wide (3x wineries, 2x Vineyards, 5x Sales Offices) plus several International offices in the US, UK and Europe.
About 2 years ago we went live with our first Linux Desktop in the production environment. The format we settled on was a LiveCD for ease of updates, administration and resilience. They were initially used to replace the dumb telnet terminals a lot of our staff were using for data entry, in order to give them the extra functionality (web browsing, office suite etc) of a Windows PC without the extra administration/maintenance overheads.
