Linux/Samba holds its own (and more) with Win2000

Make any comparison between the reliability, scalability and total cost of ownership (TCO) of Microsoft Windows 2000 and Linux, and someone's bound to object. "The areas of scalability, reliability and TCO are highly subjective and emotional," said John H. Terpstra, CEO/President of PrimaStasys, Inc., an IT mentoring and consulting firm, and an Ask the Expert advisor for SearchEnterpriseLinux.com. Even so, Terpstra -- co-founder of the Samba-Team -- accepted SearchEnterpriseLinux.com's challenge to take an objective look at the performance and costs of file and print serving on Windows 2000 as compared to Linux with the Samba open source file and print server software. In this interview, Terpstra points out why IT shops can overrule any objections made by Microsoft.
