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


"I got a good illustration yesterday of how easy things can be on Linux, especially compared with kicking a dead whale down the beach (using Windows). I was working away from my desk, and needed to print something. No big deal, that's exactly the reason why I love my HP Deskjet H470 printer so much, I just have to turn it on and print, no being chained to my desk, fumbling with cables or power cords - not only is it Bluetooth connected, but it is battery powered! Except I had booted Windows, mostly because I had the time to let it install the latest wave of "patches" from Microsoft... and I had not yet configured the Bluetooth printer on Windows (I rarely use it, so why bother?)... but how difficult could it be, anyway? Since I had the time, I might as well do it."
