Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Last Autumn I volunteered to review Windows 7. But in the
following weeks, I found Linux to be preferable in many ways. This
is pretty significant progress, and outside the 'community' has
gone largely unnoticed, too - I haven't seen all that many Ubuntu
stories in the Wall Street Journal. But what comes next is going to
be pretty challenging for everyone involved – and that's what
I'll look at here.
"But first a bit of history, starting with a confession.
"About ten years ago at around the peak of the dot.com bubble, I
looked at the rate of progress that Linux had made, which was
phenomenal, and decided that it was only a matter of time before
every PC ran Linux. Now stop laughing there at the back, because it
didn't seem quite so bonkers at the time."
