This paper published by Crimson Consulting Group discusses the solaris 10 advantage: understanding the real cost of ownership of red hat enterprise linux. Long-term cost of ownership is a more accurate metric than acquisition cost in making an operating system decision. CIOs considering Linux should be aware that other UNIX operating system providers, such as Sun Microsystems, may offer better long-term cost of ownership as compared to Linux. This paper discusses a study based on the number of servers deployed which shows that Solaris can offer a significantly lower long-term cost of ownership than Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
