The Linux operating system is being used for more and more
mission-critical business applications. Last week, Korean Air
announced that its flight crew scheduling and daily revenue
accounting systems were being moved to Linux. Linux has been
running Newell Rubbermaid's Multi Router Traffic Grapher on its
mainframe for almost a year. Winnebago Industries saved 70
percent of its software licensing costs for e-mail by using
Linux operating on an IBM mainframe. Mainframe Linux has been
downloaded from the Web roughly 3,000 times, and 10 of those
downloads are running mission-critical systems, said Giga
Information Group analyst David Mastrobattista.
