After the reception my last column regarding the security criticism I heaped on Unix and Linux vendors who are pursuing end-user desktops, I thought I would outline some of the areas where I think Linux and Unix already have strong wins.

    While I am a dedicated Unix and Linux junkie and use it everywhere I can, I may be somewhat biased. However, there are some areas where Unix and Linux systems fit in better than anything else out there. In some cases, these roles can be performed on commercial Unix systems if your organization feels better about paying for commercial-grade software. The upcoming version of Solaris, for example seems to have some new security tricks that are worth a look if you need to run secure enterprise services.
