David Knol, Engineering Manager for Infrastructure at Hier Design Inc. - ?The majority of the Hier Design engineering staff - both R&D and AEs - use Linux as the primary platform for code development, as well as running live customer designs. A PC running Linux offers two huge benefits over a comparable Sun running Solaris - better than 4x the performance for less than 1/4 the cost. It boosts engineering productivity and keeps the CFO happy. Linux is preferred to Windows because it offers the security and stability that only a Unix environment can provide. We aim to release software on all our supported platforms at the same time. Most customers are already running on Linux. Most who aren't seem to be thinking they'll make the transition soon. The cost/performance factor that benefits us, also benefits our customers. 'Chasing this Linux thing' is an inaccurate description of our situation. It's been a 'no-brainer' for us from the start. Linux won't likely obliterate Windows anytime soon, although the Linux/x86 platform does appear to be a real threat to Sun. Often times, engineers do love Linux. You'll find all kinds of IT managers. But from an EDA standpoint, the cost/productivity advantage of Linux is compelling to any company, especially in these hard economic times.?
