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.
just my 2 cents...
