A CIO perspective has an article we missed about the transition from Unix to NT from a CIO's perspective. Since an average of 48 percent of departmental server purchases are made by executives outside central IS-departments, NT cannot be ignored. On the other hand, NT is not scalable beyond 30 users and 4 processors, as a large European company found out. Although other companies have had similar experiences, it would appear that Aberdeen's report concludes that NT is cheaper than Unix, only because NT runs on PCs and Linux/*BSD are ignored. Given the $100 price-tag, I have not read the article. Does anyone know whether Linux is mentionned?
