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


[ Thanks to Tina Gasperson for this link. ]

"The premise is simple. You go to Linux2Order.com. You pick out the Linux software you want. You build your own custom CD. And then you download it. Or, if you are CD burner-less and don't have a friend with one, you buy a pre-burned CD and have it shipped, for a small, er, medium fee."

"Downloading is, of course, free. Unless you opt to go with something called "priority download," which Linux2Order describes as optimized for various connection speeds, like T1, cable, DSL, or ISDN. Does this mean that if you don't pay the monthly or yearly fee for priority download access, you have to deal with slow downloads? Maybe."

"The pre-burned CD option costs $4.95 plus shipping, which ranges from a minimum of $4.20 for domestic shipping to $14.20 for overnight delivery."
