What's Holding Up Linux on Wall Street?
Although the financial services industry has adopted Linux more slowly than first expected, Linux is now starting to hold more sway, even if often from behind the scenes, according to participants in this week's High Performance on Wall Street conference in New York City.
"I like Linux," said Chris Kwasnicki, VP/senior architect for capacity planning at Pershing LLC, one of the speakers at the full-day conference in Manhattan.
"We are using some Linux," Kwasnicki told LinuxPlanet after his conference presentation. "But I can't say anything more than that about this."
But more Linux implementations are actually happening in financial services than is commonly known outside the industry, said some attendees at the show.
