Amazon saves millions with Linux switch

ZDNet:

"The online retailer spent $54m on technology and content expenses in its third quarter, ended 30 September, compared with $71m in the year-ago quarter, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The reduction was primarily because of Amazon’s "migration to a Linux-based technology platform that utilises a less costly technology infrastructure, as well as general price reductions for data and telecommunication services due to market overcapacity," according to the statement."

It’s funny to see how the facts – Amazon.com switched some Unix apps to Linux – turn into an utterly irrelevant "Linux vs. Windows" story.
