+ - Report: Paid support not critical for Linux->

Submitted by ruphus13
ruphus13 (890164) writes "At the LinuxWorld expo, an analyst for the 451 Group pointed to growing trend in the enterprise — the increase in adoption of community-supported Linux distros. From the article, "Companies are increasingly choosing free community-driven Linux distributions instead of commercial offerings with conventional support options. Several factors are driving this trend, particularly dissatisfaction with the cost of support services from the major distributors. Companies that use and deploy Linux internally increasingly have enough in-house expertise to handle all of their technical needs and no longer have to rely on Red Hat or Novell"."
