In Canonical they say that companies that switch to Ubuntu could save up to 70% than it would cost to upgrade to Windows 10. We learned this in one post in the official blog of the company titled Windows 10: Is it finally time to migrate to Ubuntu?, Which translated into Spanish would mean Windows 10: Is it finally time to migrate to Ubuntu?. In it, Canonical says to stay on Windows it may be comfortable on a business level, but not the best choice.
As we said before, at Canonical they talk that migrating to Ubuntu can reduce maintenance and user training costs up to 70%. They also comment that “high resource consumption and expensive licenses have ended up discouraging even the most passionate Windows fans.” All this without mentioning the privacy issues arising from Windows 10.
According to Canonical, “this is probably the best time to consider other options.”
Is it time for alternatives?
It is curious to think that Canonical are not alone when it comes to raise your bet on Ubuntu while in the rest of the world Microsoft is seen reborn from its ashes as if it were a phoenix. As they commented in OMG! Ubuntu!, Dell computer maker introduced a new Chromebook designed especially for the company, From hardware in the’ software.
Industry analysts also expect to see a growth in Google’s personal computer system in companies, due to the fact that critical tasks are performed in the cloud and local needs are handled through virtualization. The inherent security in Chrome OS is also another reason why it is expected to grow. Of course, Ubuntu also has a few solutions worth considering.
At Microsoft they have announced that there are already 75 million PCs running Windows 10 worldwide, although it has not been disclosed how many users are domestic and how many corporate. This is reminiscent of when, in 2011, Canonical said they wanted Ubuntu to reach 200 million users in 2015. The launch of Irritable Ubuntu and Ubunu Touch have made this a goal. a little more plausible. After all, it’s worth noting that with Ubuntu Touch you have a full and functional Ubuntu in your pocket. If the ecosystem of applications grows enough and are added third parties with which other mobile systems do have a lot to talk about.
Nevertheless, and in spite of the exposed thing by Canonical, in one Tech Republic publication we have learned that Gartner analyst says that companies are more interested in moving forward with Windows 10, With much larger numbers to the number of companies interested in Windows 7.
With this data in hand there is no denying that there doesn’t seem to be much interest in migrating to Ubuntu in the corporate sector, Although exposed by Canonical. Whenever there is talk of introducing Linux into production systems — let’s say now on server-controlled client workstations — there is an internal debate about maintenance costs. The truth is that it would be saved by migrating to Linux, But it should also be borne in mind that training needs to be provided to staff to readjust them to the new system.
It is a very complex debate, and for many reasons in favor of using Ubuntu on home systems the corporate sector is another world where many aspects need to be taken into account.
