Hewlett-Packard (HP) last week disclosed company record-setting revenue of
$2.5 billion from its Linux-based offerings for fiscal year 2003.
Wow: $2,500,000,000 in Linux revenue. And that’s only one company.
Next time your company is going up against a Linux solution because of cost, feel
free to drop this bit of info. I feel for the suckers that write Linux code
for free. They may think they’re sticking it to Microsoft, but they’re really
the ones getting shafted.
Wake up, Industry, Linux is not free!
