Major Linux Migrations: An Unbelievable List of Nearly 100 From Around the Globe
by Scott Morris @ 6:58 am. Filed under Linux migrations

Thoroughly thrilled at the thought of Munich’s progress switching to Linux, I have actually been tracking and logging such migrations for a long time. As a matter of fact, on my OpenSUSE Linux blog, I offer a course wherein I explore all of the migrations of which I am aware. I wanted to share that list with ya’ll.

The explosive growth of the Linux operating system has literally taken the world by storm and by surprise. With the many migrations to Linux, my interest was piqued. I wanted to delve into the details of who was actually switching. Is all of the excitement just from the novelty of a few groups switching over? Or is all the excitement coming from migration after migration of many different organizations? Are that many people really making the switch?

So I hit the trail, hoping to create some kind of order out of the chaos. For several months, I searched out relevant articles outlining migrations to Linux. When it was finally finished, I compiled it all here.

After some extensive research, I uncovered some fascinating trends in Linux migration. Check out this impressive list of companies, organizations, and other entities who have switched over to Linux:

Summarily, a great many are switching to Linux. Remember that the list of migrations provided above is not comprehensive. As a matter of fact, it would be quite impossible to include them all. Even with this limited amount of research, it is obvious that there are some major players making the move. And it’s not just a couple of small-time organizations, unless you consider the U.S. Military small-time.

Evidently, several banks have switched to Linux, also. Why would they make the switch to Linux? They must trust in its security. A bank has a great deal to lose if its security is breached.

Could it be that Linux is a great option? Evidence makes it sure appear to be, doesn’t it?

Linux has a great deal to offer. It is a robust operating system used by major military and governmental organizations throughout the world. At the same time, it is easy enough that my grandmother could use it. And it is free. And it is rock-solid secure. Incredible, to say the least.

Thinking about migrating? No time like the present.

  La lista es impresionante arrakix, muchas de ellas las he ido leyendo según fueron produciéndose, cada vez me entusiasmaba mas. En esperanto no entenderíamos ni papa jejeje, pero de hecho linux es tan bueno que está como opción al instalar la distribución :D, es cierto la proxima vez que instaleis comprobadlo.

        Un saludo
