Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. The following is what happened to the performance of the E*Trade platform as they switched to Linux. They did the roll out in 2 phases, which accounts for the bump in the dip. In addition to the performance benefit, they saved roughly $16 million dollars. Not too shabby. It should be noted that during the recent February market dip, E*Trade was one of the only online brokerage sites that did not have performance issues. Lee directly attributed that to the use of Open Source.
