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

"It is with my Community Manager hat and as a Linux enthusiast that I bring you this post about the Foresight Linux distribution, literally born and brewed where I work and filled to the brim with the technology developed at rPath. However, this is not yet another article about yet another Linux distribution with arguments about how great it is compared to other popular ones out there. No siree Bob! In fact, if you are happy with the platform or distribution that you are running, then kudos to you! I will not bore you to tears comparing lists of packages, what kernel or why you should drop everything you're doing and grab a copy of Foresight. No (32-bit)!!! No (64-bit)!!! For a while Foresight was indeed a trail blazer and if you wanted to get the latest and coolest applications or features for Linux, that's where you'd go! But nowadays I feel that a lot of the popular distributions are pretty much shipping the same set of things plus or minus a feature here or there."
