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

"Vixta is essentially a remaster of Fedora designed to look somewhat like Windows Vista. Yup, Windows Vista. Some would, perhaps, argue that it’s insanity for a Linux distribution to try to mimic what might very well be Microsoft’s greatest Windows failure (well after Windows ME) but others would argue that it might help Windows Vista users switch to Linux.

"Before I get into this review let me be blunt in saying that I never liked Windows Vista all that much. I used it for a while after it’s initial release and it left me quite cold. However, I built a computer for a friend of mine and put it on that box for her and she loves it. She’s still using it and has no complaints. Your mileage may vary but Windows Vista has never been viewed very positively by me."
