Big Companies Save Bucks Now

may 23, 2003

An interesting study shows that big companies can save more money than medium and small companies when they switch to Open Source Software. "Companies with a $1.1 million budget for office software can reduce their costs as much as 20 percent by using OpenOffice software instead of Microsoft's Office product." Along the same lines they can save as much as 30% if they switch from Microsoft servers to Linux servers. Smaller companies save less on the switch according to the study.
