I gave a presentation at 8a this morning at a Wall Street Technology Association (WSTA) event, and SIN had a story on their website by time I was back at my desk. Talk about real-time reporting. Linux is big on the server side for Wall Street and will only get bigger. An excerpt:

“Linux is free and it doesn’t crash,” McPartland said, in summation.
