Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A little while ago, I posted a blog entry that dealt with
reasons why small businesses really should consider using Linux. I
listed the freedom from vendor lock-in as one very important
consideration and specifically stated that vendor lock-in here
refers to data formats, not even specifically to Linux.
Surprisingly (or not?), I got a very strange and negative reaction
from some of my readers, which seem to be more in tune with
Microsoft's solutions. So, I would like to talk about their
reasoning here and my take on it.
