“NTUC FairPrice saved over S$700,000 in software licenses and hardware costs when it turned to a Linux-based inventory management system for tracking sales and goods in 2003.”  

Bernard Chew, CIO 


"Based upon the list prices of proprietary software, closed source licensing adds 50% on top of the hardware cost for a desktop personal computer in a regular office environment, and this 50% overhead can be saved by using Open source software.”  

Dinesh Nair, Computer Security Specialist, MNCC-OSSIG technical sub-group 


“Linux will be the dominant OS in China, given the government’s administrative direction. By going with the flow, we can protect our investments and ensure future interoperability in Greater China, our target market.”  

Godwin Choi, Financial Controller, NTK
