How about a compo...

Postby ggreaves » Thu Oct 13, 2005 3:20 pm

How about running a compo to get Linux into a windows base organisation.
I was thing that it should run on a points scheme outlined below and must be confirmed by two people a director and line manager for example. I'm sure LXF can arrange a suitable prize.

Points

10 - For replacing a windows critical system with a linux server
5 - For implementing a new solution on linux server on comparison to a
windows based one.
1 - For every windows server replaced by a linux server

-1 -- for every windows server that replaces a linux server
-5 -- for implementing a new solution on windows server on comparison to
a linux based one.

It should run over a year and could be a yearly event!

Sounds good fun, but it runs the risk of people implementing Linux badly/inappropriately just to claim the prize! It's better that IT staff deploy Linux purely on its own merits, mereckons.

I'd win hands down for implementing 4 Linux servers on Police Force networks that were strictly Windos only.

Which police force is that? I'd like to congratulate them for using Linux if they ever arrest me.

My post was just a mick take, know you do karoshi and work for a school, I didn't seriously think you had room booking and a help centre at your home :)

Then again, maybe you do
