Aha! Another chance to evangalize Linux. Amazon says that migration to a Linux-based technology platform helped them save $17M last quarter (vs 3Q 2000).
I’m not a total Linux-bigot who tries to sell everybody on Linux for every problem. I strongly believe in the Right Tool for the Job, and Linux is not always that tool. But I’m glad to see that big companies are stepping out and recognizing that the OS is mature and robust enough for real-world usage.
