Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Four out of five UK resellers are primed and ready to sell Linux to their corporate customers. This astounding figure has been revealed by research by broadline distributor C2000, which recently signed to push Red Hat Linux in the UK. The research also claims that 71 per cent of resellers surveyed said their customers were already asking about Linux systems. According to IDC, Linux has 15.8 per cent share of the server operating systems market. If the C2000 research figures are true -- and why wouldn't they be? -- there is a massive latent demand for Linux in the UK. All of which will no doubt put a collective smile on the faces of the "we hate MS -- we love Linux" brigade. The research also claimed that 70 per cent of respondents had heard of Red Hat and 60 per cent would be interested in attending Red Hat training courses. Support from big name hardware vendors, such as Compaq, Intel and Dell was cited as am major influence on the channel's acceptance of the open source platform. ®
