If a commitment to Linux is already underway, what are a few of the next areas where open source can benefit the enterprise?
Chances are if you're in this position, you probably have Linux already running some basic services like firewalls, DNS, or Web servers. The next area to branch out in may be file and print with Samba and CUPS, creating redundant systems with Heartbeat, or network monitoring with OpenNMS. Open source content management systems are quite mature, with Joomla! and Bricolage leading the way. On the desktop, you might start with OpenOffice for all new hires in place of Microsoft Office as a way to begin phasing in the use of open source software.
