Linux Desktops @ Cisco
Cisco is majorly into pushing Linux desktops inside the company says Craig Manning, an IT manager at Cisco Systems who manages Cisco's internal network. as per this slashdotted article from LinuxWorld magazine. Cisco has already converted more than 2,000 of its engineers to Linux desktops, with plans to move many laptop users to the platform over the next few years. Manning says the driver for Linux on the desktop is not cost savings, but easier support. "On the desktop, you're not going to save that much money by replacing Windows with Linux," says Manning, who is also chairman of the Open Source Development Lab's (OSDL) Desktop Linux Steering Committee.
