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


[ Thanks to David for this link. ]

"The latest Ubuntu Linux release seems to have been a huge hit. Review after Review after Review have pretty much pegged it as the next best thing since sliced bread, but does this release of Ubuntu Linux live up to the hype?

"We have been putting Ubuntu Linux 10.04 through the paces for over a month, and we can see how it received such shining reviews. It is probably the best Ubuntu Linux release to date, although it still has some minor problems. For instance, there are still some issues when trying to install some applications (try to install gnochm), there are still problems connecting to some NFS Servers and there is still a lack of Graphical System Administration Utilities.

"Since we released a Linux Distribution Shootout only a few months ago and most of the Ubuntu issues we raised in that article are still prevailiant, we decided against creating a "review" of this release of Ubuntu Linux and instead focused on one of the new features that not too many people have touched upon, namely the inclusion of a new Ubuntu Installer for Windows and how the Distribution stacks up for Microsoft Windows Users."
