London Stock Exchange goes live with Linux
The system has been trialled for several months and the LSE’s move to Linux continues what appears to be a trend for stock exchanges as it was recently announced that the LSE and Canada’s TMX, already a Linux-based exchange, would merge their trading systems, and that the Johannesburg Stock Exchange would also move to Linux.
Will the capitalists of the LSE fall in love with Linux? Why was St Valentine’s Day chosen for the launch? Is this a romance made in heaven? If you can answer any of these questions, leave a comment below.
