More than just an operating system, Linux has become a movement leading the open-source charge.

When IBM consolidated its midrange server platform in 2008, it was perceived largely as a convergence of the System i and System p, or AIX, operating systems onto a single hardware platform. The fact that Power Systems would also run Linux appeared as a somewhat gratuitous concession to the growing worldwide interest in open-source software, a trend that was a polar opposite to IBM's traditional proprietary architectures. More than three years later, Linux has emerged as the next up-and-coming star, its presence quietly creeping into embedded systems everywhere and onto enterprise servers in the world's largest organizations.

Such tasks as creating forecasts, building inventory assemblies, pinpointing job costs, and evaluating business performance trends have become as important in some contexts as any other accounting functions.
