Small Business Trends: Linux & Open Source in 2013


Small Business Trends: Linux & Open Source in 2013;
A lot of small businesses are reluctant to try Linux because they think it means moving away from Microsoft Windows, and you can't blame them. Change is disruptive, and while a lot of software applications are cross-platform, most aren't, so leaving Windows often means leaving favorite software behind.
However, the choice is not either-or, because the Linux world offers a lot of excellent tools for interoperability. You can mix Linux, Mac and Windows computers on your small business network. Then you have the best of all worlds.
Once you enter the Linux world, you have a vast universe of high-quality professional software at your fingertips, most of it for free. Linux is stable, secure, and very efficient: it doesn't suck up your hardware resources just to run itself, and you don't need anti-malware software further bogging it down.
What does 2013 promise for the Linux customer? Just about everything. Let's look at a sampling of some excellent Linux software that could benefit your small business.
