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

"I have tried dozens of Linux distributions over the
years, and very few have been installed on my system for more than
a few days. Once the novelty of a new interface, a new bunch of
applications and that warm glow that comes from being just a little
bit geekier wears off I find myself facing the same dilemma:
Windows worked, and the applications I was used to were mostly
Windows based. It's not that I couldn't learn to use, or even love,
Linux; it's just that I didn't have time.
"Linux Mint 7 has been gaining some press lately, and I found
myself once again curious to see if I could actually make the move
from Windows. I wasn't expecting much. For all of it's popularity,
Ubuntu always had some deal breaking issue that I just couldn't be
bothered fixing which meant that it was removed in favour of
Windows within a few days"
