results are now reinforcing anecdotal evidence and supporting vendor
marketing claims by showing that, when it comes to choice of an
operating system platform for an ERP system, there is still a degree
of choice. This is in marked contrast to the reduced choices
available in ERP systems themselves. Linux will provide a very viable
alternative to the entrenched Unix variants and the ubiquitous
Windows. This has to be good for end users – particularly those
in the medium size business category.
