One IT director who did not wish to be named simply said open source "looks more and more tempting" while Paul Broome, IT director at 192.com, said he plans to migrate off Windows server and SQL server as soon as he can.
Broome said: "It's a millstone to enterprise for an SME. To allow us to grow, all new database servers will use 64-bit Linux and MySQL. We've had enough. We can't scale out with Microsoft as it's too expensive."
Good thinking, Paul!
