Linux is not a recent phenomenon. It is a culmination of over fifteen
years work by some of the world's most talented programmers whose intent
was to create a stable operating system that was both free of charge,
and free to change. The project came to fruition in 1991 with the
completion of Linus Torvalds' revolutionary work on the core of Linux,
Linux runs on almost any computer in existence, from Palm Pilots to
digital cameras, from home computers to mainframes, and it is being
recognised by large American multinationals who require stability and
reliability from their servers.
These fortune 500 corporations recognise the immediate benefits Linux
can offer to any company. The productivity benefits are without a doubt
Linux's trump card offering many Irish companies zero or low downtime on
their critical servers, and without having to make any modifications to
their existing Windows based workstations. Linux is more than capable
of delivering any service that a Windows computer may request, from file
serving, email, web access, and security to providing a bridge between
different computer platforms. Linux can bridge the gap between PCs and
Macintoshes seamlessly, offer everyone in an office Internet access
through one modem while still fulfilling its server tasks.
Above all, Linux is efficient. A modern PC running Linux in use as a
central server will rarely use more than 40% of its processing capacity,
which means more free cpu cycles to increase your business'
productivity, and more scope to integrate new PC's into your office as
your business develops.
If you feel your business can benefit from the head start Linux can give
you, then the Linux.ie staff at the Windows World Exhibition will he
happy to answer any questions you may have.
