Linux for the Desktop?

Is it right for you?


The size of your company. Large organizations absorb changes more slowly than small ones. Small companies can make a switch more easily.

Your software environment. If your primary business software only runs on Windows, and only as a desktop application (not client/server or web app), there are still workarounds, but it ends up being a lot of hassle.

If your company already prefers browser-based office and collaborative tools (the Google Apps for Work suite) over the traditional desktop applications (Microsoft Office, Outlook), Linux simply saves you paying for software you don’t need.
