Migrating from Windows or proprietary UNIX to Linux has many benefits.
Lower costs, greater stability and reliability are often the most cited reasons. Engineers like access to source code and conformity with open standards as major benefits.
Others talk of application security and community support.
There are many more compelling reasons. But these reasons aside, it's the freedom from software licensing that attracts many organizations.
Linux eliminates the need for a Client Access License (CAL), which is the fee Microsoft charges per client to access a service. Microsoft charges the fees some times for both the device and the user.
Large enterprises with thousands of desktops can save millions of dollars by switching to Linux.
