Red Hat more secure than Windows, 7/10 dentists agree

The Standish group recently completed an extensive study that examines factors influencing open-source adoption. Based on five years of research and analysis, the report provides intriguing insights into open-source adoption levels and the way that open source is reshaping the software industry. Individuals who participated in the Standish survey identified several key drivers for open source adoption, including lower costs, better security and reliability, and faster development speed.

According to the report, open-source software reduces the initial cost of launching new projects. “When budgets are tight it’s all too easy to get sucked into the assumption that whatever the project may be, it will be faced with an immediate ‘no.’ Open source can turn that ‘no’ into a ‘yes.’,” the report says. It also examines long-term budget benefits too and points out that open source adoption can rescue companies from the “hidden cost associated with packaged software upgrades.” (link)
