Ubuntu for Business

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu is easy to install on a network and plays well with others, meaning it
| works well in a mixed-computing situation with other operating systems such
| as Windows, Mac OS X, and, of course, UNIX. A simple Ubuntu server can be put
| to work as an initial partial solution or made to mimic file, mail, or print
| servers of other operating systems. Clerical staff should quickly adapt to
| using familiar Internet and productivity tools, while your business gets the
| additional benefits of stability, security, and a virus-free computing
| platform.

| zero cash. The most painful thing about the change over was moving to
| Thunderbird from Outlook. No one has batted an eyelid about moving to Gnome.”
