LSE goes Linux

The London Stock Exchange has just hoofed out its trading platform based on Microsoft and .Net.

In a move (sort of) reminiscent of Sun‘s decision to buy a company making an alternative rather than renew its Microsoft Office licences, the LSE is buying an entire development company

I remember the delight expressed by Microsoft when the LSE went Microsoft (Catch it while you can), together with its “High Reliability Times” advertisements (scroll down) and videos which were as more than one person noted were a bit premature
