Betting your farm on Linux?

atdot Re:Linux does have more hype than product. (135 comments)

Linux does have a home. It will always have a home, and this home is growing. BSD(net-open-free-bsdi-whatever) also. Solaris, even NT. But trying to use any of the above for something they're not ready for is just as silly at thinking Linux will take over Micro$oft in the workstation or server market. The hype surrounding Linux is fun, Linux is fun, but would I use Linux for anything other than fun? Today, no. Tomorrow, maybe. Think about it.
