Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Linux offers some real world features not available in Windows
that are worth exploring. And for some, those features may prove to
be worth making a switch. However, the transition may seem simple
for some while very difficult for others. But I think that knowing
up front that you have to adapt to Linux, rather than expecting a
Windows like experience, could increase the chances of adopting
Linux as your next Operating System.
"Are you looking to make a switch? Has something in Windows
gotten under your skin and Microsoft not done anything to fix it or
provide you with another option? You are not alone. Windows is a
nice product. But the manner in which it is designed isn't for
everyone. And quite frankly I find it too restrictive. Many feel
that is it's greatest flaw, but it is actually a huge reason for
its success. Fortunately, we don't have to be led by the hand if we
don't want to. So we'll leave Windows to the users that are quite
happy with it the way it is."
