Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"If you didn't already know, I am in the computer repair
business. Normally, people come in with either PCs or Macs, and
request repairs that are really rather simple. Occasionally, I'm
called on to do large installations, or set up servers, but that's
rare. What's even more rare is having a Linux client. I did just
happen to get one though. The first I've ever had.
"A gentleman in his late 50s came through the door to the shop.
He soberly told me that his laptop (a Gateway MX3228) wasn't
booting. He turned it on that morning, and it just refused to
cooperate. As luck would have it, he was running Windows XP, which
tells me that he likely had a registry error that was preventing
the system from booting."
