Not exactly what you're looking for, but:
might help. Make sure to read the Kirch paper. It's a little out of
date now, but still a good read.
As someone else has mentioned in this thread, I'd be leery (sp?) of
encouraging someone to use Linux in a production environment if he
doesn't yet have enough experience with it. But, maybe they can try it
on their LAN behind a firewall for a while, or something.
They can take a look at FreeBSD as someone else has mentioned as well,
or OpenBSD - http://www.openbsd.org/
Good luck. ;-)
