Linux total cost of operation 40 percent lower than Windows

Posted on Thursday, September 01 2005 @ 22:12:04 CEST by

A report from Robert Frances Group (RFG), sponsered by IBM, claims Linux's total cost of operation (TCO) is typically 40 percent lower than Windows.
The report comes after two years of Microsoft-sponsored research heralding the benefits of Windows over Linux, although IBM denied it is a direct response.

The overall finding was that Linux was 40 percent less expensive than a comparable Windows system and 54 percent less than Solaris, based on a three-year period of ownership for a system supporting 100,000 operations per second on the SPECjbb benchmark. The research was based on in-depth interviews with IT executives from more than 20 medium and large enterprises - all with more than 250 employees - in industries such as education, entertainment, finance, government and retail.
