gaming giant Tattersalls has dumped Linux in a $43 million project to

According to Australian IT, the open source operating system is used in 4,000 venues throughout Queensland, NSW and the Northern Territory.
Chief information officer Stephen Lawrie said a new platform built around Microsoft products would be developed instead.
He said recent mergers with interstate gaming operations had left Maxgaming with a complicated set of software licenses and made it difficult to run four platforms at once.
