Linux.com: The Kevin Lindsay interview [head developer of Stormix Tech]

Jun 03, 2000, 17:05 (0 Talkback[s])

"Kevin Lindsay is the head developer of Stormix Technologies, creator of the Debian-based Storm Linux distribution."

"Linux.com: How does Stormix compete with other distribution providers in the Linux market?

Kevin Lindsay: Right now our focus is both the desktop and the server market. We feel that Linux is becoming very popular on the desktop, and we expect that people will be switching to Linux quite a bit for the next few years. It's already gained quite a bit of market share, comparable to the MacOS; and with a split of Microsoft pending, more people will be interested in alternatives."

"We focus on the integration of Linux into the business world, with more of an emphasis on the server side. There are a lot of NT networks out there which could be replaced with Linux networks. To do that, we have to provide an easier way for people to convert; with the Storm Administration Systems and its remote access capabilities, you can administer servers from a local box, and we'll eventually have a Windows client port. This way, NT administrators can easily convert their servers over to Linux."
