[vox] Airlines starting to fly with Linux (NewsForge)


From the LWN article:

> NewsForge looks at Linux adoption in the airline industry. "Don't
> expect Linux to take over the aviation industry in the next few weeks
> or months. It's a conservative, highly-regulated business that does
> extensive evaluations before making even small changes. Interest and
> test installations today may not mean full-scale Linux use for at
> least another year or two by even the most receptive airlines and
> military aviation administrators. And, according to Berghammer, most
> of the early "Linux in aviation" adoptors are likely to be in Europe,
> the Middle East, and Asia, not the United States."

Still, see the comment by ncm below the article:

> Many people already know that Orbitz.com runs several hundred Linux
> servers to do its fare and schedule searches. It's less widely known
> that Continental's web site runs its searches on a Linux farm, too.

It seems like Linux should be a shoe in. :-)
