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

"My associate of the moment felt fast food represented it best for him. He wanted to zip in, get a pre-planned 'combo' that would give him at least 75 to 90% of what he really wanted then go from there.

"I am a "Village Inn" kind of guy myself. I like to set down a moment, look over the menu, see what I really want or need, depending on the situation or meal, and make sure I get exactly what I want. I will even order 'off' the menu if I need to, because I know there are some goodies that they will make, but they don't put them out in the menu for everyone to see. You have to know what you want and ask for it yourself.

"Some would say that comparing Ubuntu or even past them, Mint and PCLinuxOS, is like going to Mickey D's. It's like driving in and ordering the combo that has been pre-packaged to accommodate the widest groups typical wants or needs. Nothing wrong with that, lot's of people like to do things just that way."
