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

[Editor's Note: Though I am normally content to let news be posted here without comment from the Linux Today staff, I found I could not let the news of LWN's possible folding go without at least a few words.

As readers of LWN, we are saddened by the announcement made by LWN's staff in this week's Weekly Edition. Their take on the headlines surrounding the Linux community have been nothing less than exemplary. The staff of Linux Today, past and present, has always regarded the LWN site as a different voice in the business of bringing Linux news to readers--a different and respected voice.

We sincerely hope that LWN's announcement was premature and that their voice in the chorus of the Linux community is not silenced.
