Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"First off, let's dispel a couple of things. I have sat in
meetings with principals and school administrators and listened
slack-jawed as system administrators (mostly MSCE's) told their
employers that it was illegal to remove Windows from their current
computers. They didn't say it violated their contracts or
licenses...they said it was illegal.
"That's either so uninformed that it begs the question "Why are
you doing this job?" or it undeniably stands as a bold-faced
"Look. You are not only barring thousands of students and
customers from your systems, you are forcing them to use an
operating system that is inherently weak. In addition, you cry
about your operating costs then when the tears dry, you write the
check to Microsoft for the latest licenses."
