|OpenOffice, Linux save Verizon BIG BUCKS|

It may be old news that Verizon switched its programmers to Linux and OpenOfiice - but Verizon recently claimed that the move dropped their cost per workstation from $22,000 to $3,000.
Now that is some savings!

Thats good news, maybe they will work towards more of the work force away from windows.

That sure is some savings. Imagine how much they would have saved if the CEO's secretary had been typing memos on a Linux computer.
