The economic downturn has created turmoil and indecision throughout the operating environment industry, and this is affecting Linux both as a standalone product and as a possible replacement to other operating system platforms in use. In difficult economic conditions, enterprises tend to avoid actions that call for significant new investments in hardware, software, or human resources. Instead, IT organizations want to leverage the skills of existing staff who are left after downsizing actions, and they will be looking for any possible investments to have a same-year payback associated with them. This Technology Spotlight discusses the growth of Linux as a strategic platform for enterprises as well as the evolving uses of Linux and its benefits. The paper also looks at the role of Symantec in this important market.
