Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The question: What you can see in this slide?
"Yes, the strategy is upside down. Let me explain myself.
"The graphic categorize software in three layers or blocks:
"Bottom Block – Office – Windows – Windows
Server: I know that as today (Jun 2010), the more solid OSS
products are the foundational ones (the one on the bottom of the
chart). Open Source Software like Linux Servers, Ubuntu and
OpenOffice.org are solid/stable technologies, but we know that
Microsoft doesn't want to hurt its business, so they ignore Linux
and put Windows and Office there."
