Linux ServerWatch writes about the slow but sure death of UNIX by the onslaught of Linux and customers moving from older proprietary UNIX systems to commercially supported open source enterprise Linux distributions. "Linux does have one killer feature that is driving the switch: lower cost. Many companies are discovering Linux to be extremely attractive from a cost perspective. Take the experience of Sabre, a travel company that replaced Solaris with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on x86 machines, resulting in lowering costs 90 percent (with a three-fold speed gain to boot). These potential cost savings, which include hardware maintenance costs savings, are not to sniffed at."

because Google Ninja ( or insert other name here ) the coward don't like Moulinneuf

Ye Gods. How shall I say this?

Moulinneuf, you don't present a very likable personality on this site. Be nice. Be respectful of others' opinions. Respectfully disagree with them when you do disagree. And others would treat you differently. You would be better listened to. Your thoughts would be taken more seriously. And you would do more good for the causes which you obviously believe in deeply. (You and I share some of those.)

One other thing that is possibly related. The spelling of your name is difficult to remember. I'm pretty good with spelling and I *always* have to verify whether I got it right. (Sometimes I get lazy and do not verify it.) It would be easier to remember if both the 'l' and the 'n' were double consonants. Then there is the 'ou' and the 'eu'. That combination gives a lot of people trouble. It's a sort of spelling roller-coaster. Misspelling of your name, which is actually a pretty cool one in my opinion, should not be taken as an insult. Just thought I should make that clear.
