Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"When you have a chaotic, non-routinized environment, creativity
can often flow unchecked, or at least not-too-terribly-hampered by
the marketing or finance department.
"One of the most beautiful aspects of LinuxLand is that, in its
chaos, a wild creativity can spawn sweet and enduring projects. One
of those projects, Compiz Fusion, was sparky enough to help me
enter LinuxLand which in turn helped me build a hardware company.
That company now, through gentle competition, encourages the other
Linux builders to work harder for better specs at better prices,
being faster and more limber than each other.
"The Compiz Fusion Wrecking Ball
"While many of you reading this article do not have the time or
inclination to have the effects of Compiz Fusion on your personal
computer, this particular piece of software, in its own inadvertent
way, convinced a 30-something hyper-busy soccer mom with four kids,
two jobs and not a nano-second to spare to take the time to sit
down and learn about Linux and its wonders. It was among one of the
hardest conversions for Linux."
