Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"The Linux Foundation, which famously acquired the
linux.com domain last year, is dedicated, in its own words, to
“fostering the growth of Linux.” That’s obviously
a noble, if ambiguous, goal, and the promotion of Linux on any
front is beneficial to the free-software community as a whole.
"But it’s somewhat regrettable that the Linux Foundation
has chosen to focus a huge majority of its resources catering to
corporate users and geeks, rather than advancing Ubuntu’s
mission of pushing Linux onto the desktops of normal people. That
problem is exemplified in the linux.com website, which is not as
helpful as it could be for non-geeks trying to figure out if Linux
could work for them."
