We all love free software. We think it should be used everywhere,
right? And that means Linux... Linux everywhere, right?

great fit for the task. There are other solutions...
Wesley Shields will be telling us about his favorite open source
project, and how it can be a good fit for companies that need a Unix
solution. He'll tell us what's similar to Linux, what's different, and
why companies might care.
