Google, Amazon top best vendor list by at LinuxExpo

LOS GATOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VendorRate ( announced today that IT professionals attending the LinuxWorld Expo 2008 Conference in San Francisco this month gave their highest customer satisfaction scores to technology vendors Amazon, VMware, Shoretel, Apple and Google., the only Internet site that offers quick, confidential performance ratings and comparisons of technology vendors, said hundreds of vendors were rated during the August 5-7 show attended by some 10,000 Linux users. Attendees were invited to rate any IT or telecom vendor, regardless of whether they were among the 200 exhibiting at the show.

While raters at LinuxWorld 2008 demonstrated their general propensity for alternative technologies in their ratings, they also proved to be more scrutinous in their evaluations, delivering lower overall performance scores than vendors had received on VendorRate prior to the show.

This knowledgeable crowd showed the kind of independence weve come to expect from Linux users, said Rick Schaefer, CEO of VendorRate. LinuxWorld attendees may seem like a tough crowd for vendors to please, but they are quite willing to compliment a vendor they feel is doing a good job.
