Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"...Linux is complex by its very nature. The way the kernel and
the rest of the software works, it has to be. And while it can be
daunting for newcomers to come into Linux for the first time, the
influx of commercial funds into developer's wallets is giving those
same developers enough money and time to smooth out the rough edges
of Linux and make entry into our little band easier every day."
"Still, industry analysts, typically funded by Microsoft, argue
that Linux is always going to be a patchwork job held together by
some chewing gum and bailing wire. "It's too cumbersome," they say,
"no one can ever learn all of it."
"This from the same people that make you take a certification
class to learn "all" of their operating system. I have known plenty
of MCSEs in my time, and none of the them know all about any
version of Windows. To then turn around and accuse Linux of being
to complex for its own good it nothing short of hypocritical. Ever
played with the Registry Editor?"
