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

"Every one of these distributions has real positives,
regardless of your personal favorite. They are, after all, built
using the same base operating system and a common set of tools. One
might go further and suggest that the desktop itself is a shared
idea, or at least, two popular shared ideas.
"The sessions weren't particularly long and we had wardrobe, er,
room partitioning malfunctions, so this tour of user-friendly Linux
and promoting these to people coming from other, lesser, operating
systems was more of a rapid tour -- I called it a rogues gallery.
But I digress . . .
"In comparing the various distribution, I talked about what I
thought they did right, and what they did wrong. For example;
Fedora, I know you believe in the whole total freedom thing, but
Abiword is not a replacement for MS Word. That would be
OpenOffice.org, a choice that most major distributions make. And
that, was in fact, my point."
