    The Oakland Tribune reports that more of Cisco's 35,000 employees may use
    Desktop Linux instead of Windows, according to CIO Brad Boston. While Cisco
    engineers have long had a choice in desktop OS, this news could signal a
    growing change in corporate America. Boston is quoted as saying that Cisco
    has a "grass-roots Linux effort going on" and reportedly runs Linux on his
    IBM laptop.

    Recently, Symantec's CEO John Thompson publicly mulled a corporate-wide
    deployment of Linux desktops. Linux makers Novell and IBM have also
    announced major in-house desktop migration strategies.
