Closer Look At Linux

Microsoft has deployed Linux and other open-source software in a test center that's typically used by its business customers to experiment with Microsoft's own products. The project was started in May to determine the effort involved in building the kind of open-source platform that might be found in a typical business environment. Next, Microsoft plans to create a comparable system using Windows and its own server products to see how Windows and Linux match up side by side in a variety of workload scenarios. The move is the latest in Microsoft's attempt to demonstrate that Windows has both technical and cost advantages over Linux, which has been gaining share in the server market at Microsoft's expense.
