July 8 meeting: Why Linux Is Bad For Business

Tue, 2010-06-29 13:28

We all love free software. We think it should be used everywhere,

Wesley Shields will be telling us about his favorite open source
project, and how it can be a good fit for companies that need a Unix
solution. He'll tell us what's similar to Linux, what's different, and
why companies might care.
