Linux When it comes to the fast-moving business of trading stocks, bonds and derivatives, the world's financial exchanges are finding an ally in Linux. As late as 2007, Wall Street exchanges were still largely run on Unix . . . Over the past few years however, Linux has crept into this market, showing up first in ancillary systems and then running a few core exchanges.

When you do your own support, Linux is great.

But I guess these people need big support contracts and they depend on these businesses to deliver a good product for them.

They are basically saying they can't find a good Linux company which delivers an integrated solution.

Which to me seems unlikely, but maybe it's true.

I know nothing about their needs.
