Linux from a CIO’s Perspective

Mickey Lutz, CIO of Cendant Travel Distribution Services, did the unthinkable. In the category of less than 10% of all Fortune 1000 CIOs, he took the leap of faith and moved from a $100 million per year mainframe to Linux. The cost savings were staggering, at over 90%, running the yearly cost for 144 Linux servers at approximately $2.5 million.
And you wonder why not many more people are interested in this type of savings.
