General Development Ms. Z. Arsenault is an IT consultant working in the depths of a large North American energy company. She's one of those brave souls who works away in the background, keeping the servers running, making sure all the pieces fall properly into place so when the employees wander in each morning their applications run as expected. It's often a busy job just keeping things on a steady path. But Ms. Arsenault and her team aren't just maintaining the status quo, they're also trying to improve performance and cut costs while maintaining a stable environment for the end user. This week I had the opportunity to talk with Ms. Arsenault about what's she's been up to in the depths of corporate IT.

Red Hat has such a compelling story. They are cheaper, offer great long support and 100% FOSS stack long term strategy (that includes the possibility to use CentOS once you have enough in house knowledge)

I don't see RH making 6.66 billion a quarter like MS, but in the very long run I don't see how anybody can really compete with them.

PS. And I knew when I saw the photo that sexist comments are a likely possibility, but I hoped OSnews was better than that.

What's there to be "better than that"? Considering her sexy is much more humane than considering a mobile phone sexy...

Still.. a good gadget is sexy too, as is she... ;)
