Here are a few of CyberKnights’ many happy customers.
Golden Light Photography do professional wedding photography, child portraiture and other candid shots in a casual, down-to-earth photo-journalistic style. They are located in Perth's Northern Suburbs but travel can be arranged as necessary — even to other parts of Western Australia and in very special cases other states.
Golden Light edit and process their portraits (and landscapes) entirely using Open Source software, including The GIMP. They use Linux for their workstations, and also to handle DNS, email and web services.
V-Grip have developed a range of novel, extremely strong and easy to use fasteners for sheet material.
V-Grip employ a Linux gateway, which also acts as a file server, DNS, email and (for their less busy sites) a webserver. They also use Open Source applications for web browsing, email and repairing damaged or doubtful documents and have reported a steep decline in virus attacks and spyware infestations as a consequence.
Callcott & Downey do precision honing and machining of heavy equipment. They use Linux for gateway/firewall, email and file services, and a separate Linux server to run their LineOfBusiness applications. They have begun using more Open Source applications on the desktop, also reporting immediate and lasting benefits.
Linux, along with Solaris, also came out ahead of Windows in terms of administration costs, despite the fact that it’s less expensive to hire Windows system administrators. The average Windows administrator in the study earned [USD]$68,500 a year, while Linux sys admins took home [USD]$71,400, and those with Solaris skills were paid [USD]$85,844. The Windows technicians, however, only managed an average of 10 machines each, while Linux or Solaris admins can generally handle several times that. — CIO Update, summarising a Robert Frances Group report
