Deutsche Bank: Free Software is Big Business

The paper Free Software, Big Business? from Deutsche Bank research talks about the growing interest in Open Source and free software and about the increasingly successful Linux operating system.

The paper concludes that the quality of Open Source software is often equal to or better than that of commercial alternatives, and that Open Source represents a significant cost saving opportunity for financial companies like Deutsche Bank. Furthermore, Open Source competency could be become an important criteria in the evaluation and investment decisions of companies.
