A Convert to the Fold

Replacing Windows™ infrastructure with Linu™ by David Newall


A good friend and colleague asked me to help move his infrastructure from Windows to Linux.  Ten out of thirteen machines running Windows, on a network with ADSL, Cable and 802.11b wireless, were converted to Linux.  A firewall/router was installed, which in addition to improving security, provided traffic management policies which resulted in savings in cost of data.  Over 150 email accounts across twelve virtual domains were transferred with minimal disruption.  A pleasant yet unanticipated side-benefit was a freeing up of computing infrastructure, permitting functional expansion of his facilities.
