SAN FRANCISCO--Telecommunications company Verizon Communications 
saved $6 million in equipment costs by moving its programmers to 
Linux computers, the company said Wednesday. 

The company cut costs by replacing programmers' Unix and Windows 
workstations with Linux systems that run OpenOffice instead of 
Microsoft Office, said George Hughes, a Verizon executive 
overseeing the work. The average desktop cost went from $22,000 
to $3,000 per developer, he said in a talk at the LinuxWorld 
Conference and Expo.
