Telstra says Linux Offers 65% Lower TCO (Updated)
The Australian Financial Review is reporting that Telstra is looking to use Linux extensively as it aims to slice its $1.5 billion annual bill for information technology in half through extensive rationalisation of systems and technology suppliers and improved use of resources.

"We are going to run world-class data centres," Mr Smith said. The carrier has already experimented with a Linux on Intel platform that it believes could reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 65 per cent.

A similar article in the Australian IT is reporting that Telstra is looking to move up to 85% of is desktops to thin client technology, including the use of Star Office, Gnome, and Mozilla.
