HPCwire: As new federal requirements for enhanced computing capabilities confront public sector agencies, government managers are increasingly adopting open source architecture to upgrade their IT environments, says a new survey from Larstan Business Reports.
According to Larstan's survey of IT managers in the civilian and defense federal sectors, more and more federal computer infrastructures are migrating from proprietary Unix operating systems to open source Linux, to gain platform flexibility and other benefits. A majority of respondents - 63 percent - either agreed or strongly agreed that architecture with "open" (i.e., accessible) source code is valuable and their organization should adopt it.
