Short Take: Jay Jacobs taps Linux

Some may believe the Linux operating system isn't a good choice for commercial use, but not fashion retailer Jay Jacobs. The company will install at all its 115 stores a Linux-based computer system running Linux versions of the Apropos Retail Management Systems software and Informix database software. Jay Jacobs said in a statement it chose Linux-based system for its low cost, reliability, and expandability.
