Wrong reasons for Linux migration

Linux migration may seem cool but that's no reason to move your customer to the open source operating system. Know when it's not time for a Unix-to-Linux migration.

  • When customers want to migrate to Linux just because they like it.
  • When application software is extensively customized for Unix.
  • When money is allocated to purchase new Unix applications.
  • When there is no open source software to replace present applications.
  • When you're unable to provide skilled Linux support.
