Enterprise Linux vs. Server 2003: Smackdown!

last modified 2006-02-22 03:52 PM

eWeek's Steven J. Vaughan-Nichol says Enterprise Linux servers beats Microsoft Server 2003 hands down.

The article contends:

    Have you compared the TCO or ROI of Linux to     
    Microsoft's Server 2003, the only serious new 
    Intel-based server operating system left out
    there? I have; the clear winner is Linux.

You all know what I think of the TCO word. But Vaughan-Nichol gives some more compelling reasons for Linux Server superiority:

  1. Application availability (that's an intersting one)
  2. Safety
  3. Functionality
  4. No vendor lock-in

Point four alone should be enough. But throw in lower cost and you have to agree - Linux servers are winners.
