Is your IT shop desperate to get off the Windows IV and into the free-wheelin’, foot loose and fancy free world of open source applications? No? Are you sure you’re on the right blog?
I only ask because I got an email today from reader Rich I. that contained a link to the top 50 applications to get your office on open source and I thought it was pretty interesting. A lot of the stuff I had heard of before, but it was nice to see all those apps compiled into a handy dandy list. Even I, in my infinite Linux wisdom*, found a new one here and there. Zabbix anyone?
I’d like to see more though. Throughout 2007 I’ve made it a point to ask which applications people are running on their Linux servers, and why. We’ve covered Samba and Apache a lot already, so anything and everything else is fair game. What works? What doesn’t? Let me know in the comments or at my email address.
