FORTUNE.COM - Fast Forward - Marc Andreessen on What's Next "A few of his favorite points:
"Linux and Windows are winning--everything else is losing."
"You can replace a $300,000 Unix server with ten $3,000 Dell servers for a ten-times savings right off the bat--and they'll outperform."
Storage hardware has gotten so cheap--close to $1/gigabyte--that fully redundant storage for a big multinational company can now cost only around $300,000.
Bandwidth costs have plunged. Andreessen says that whereas Netscape paid about $1,600/megabit in late 1999, today the price is down to a mere $50."
