  • ROI is instant, as it is free :) However, the long term benefit is that you can run enterprise-level open source software on it.
  • It requires the Sysadmin to be familiar with Ubuntu Linux, so this can command a higher cost of the resource to manage it.

  • We transitioned to Ubuntu to combat the Microsoft TCO, this had great reductions on cost spread over the entire business.
  • A side effect was that people started to lean more to open-source software solutions reducing the total license cost overhead even more.

  • The massive user community made it easy for my team to resolve our migration issues without needing to engage in professional support, saving us money.
  • Our Ubuntu migration has enabled us to move off of Microsoft platforms to better align with our customers' desires to move toward open-source platforms in support of their cost-saving efforts.
  • Some users had difficulty making the transition to Ubuntu Linux, requiring us to ensure we had appropriate training in place. This primarily the form of mentoring from other, more experienced users, but we opted for a few licenses to Linuxacademy.com to help with the migration.

  • We've been able to standardize our development enthronement to avoid conflicts.
  • Canonical Livepatch helps cut down reboots and shutdowns due to updates.
  • Some programs on Linux don't perform quite as well as their Windows counterparts and it becomes difficult to adopt them.

  • We have only seen a positive ROI. It's free to license.
  • It's easier to use and support than most other distributions, so there are reduced labor costs.
  • Adding Ubuntu to our mixed network of Mac and Windows computers has made more applications and solutions possible.

  • There are many things that you can use Ubuntu Linux for, even in a Windows-based environment. For example, network monitoring is handled very well by Ubuntu Linux (using Open NMS).
  • Since Ubuntu Linux is freely available, you don't have to worry about purchasing a license for each server you build.
  • Ubuntu Linux also runs well as a virtual machine on the Hyper-V server.
