Migrate Win>Linux


Thinking of migrating to Linux. Problems:
1) worried that alot of mission critical data and files will be lost in the process.
2) enterprise applications incompatibility
3) which distro is truly enterprise ready

1) if its "mission critical", wouldn't it be backed up multiple times before even contemplating this?
2) depends on what you want to do -- certantly you can't expect to install your windows apps in linux, but there are alternatives
3) enterprise linux comes at a price, and with support... but linux is free, and if you have the experience, you could do it yourself.

1. It's up to you to create a working backup of data.
2. There are other options besides the standard Win apps. Research them!
3. Many. Take a walk over to DistroWatch

Geez, lighten up. Is this not a "community"?

Seriously..stop. Ever think that maybe we were posting at the same time? Are you not defeating the purpose of the board by acting so immature?

Multiple replies with a similar repsonse happen. Call it a happy accident. Blatantly hostile ones require some degree of intent.
