It was very interesting to read the
cover story articles on Linux in the March 2003 issue
of Network Magazine written by Soutiman Das Gupta. They
are very informative and cover almost all areas of concern.
In case of migration I would like
to know the cost benefits (ROI, support, training) of
Linux. It will also help to know the cost of using Linux
vis -à-vis that of a proprietary system. It will
help us greatly to make a decision to migrate our IT
infrastructure to Linux.
Dear Ranjeet Singh
Thank you for your letter. We are
glad that you found the cover story articles on Linux
interesting and useful.
Migration to Linux can show cost benefits but it really

get in touch with the leading vendors like Red Hat and
Suse, or consultants who will visit your site, look
at the infrastructure, and give you a realistic picture.
We wish you all the best.
NSE's not down
The case study article in the April
2003 issue of Network Magazine on NSE's disaster recovery
initiatives, called 'NSE - Not down in disaster', written
by Soutiman Das Gupta was very good.
I hope to see more articles like
that in your magazine.

Dear Deb Ghosh
Thank you for your appreciation.
We certainly will publish more such case studies in
future issues. And this is especially because disaster
recovery and business continuity planning are on their
way to become boardroom issues in many organizations.
