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

"What is using Linux like in 2010? Can anybody pick it it? What about giving it a trial run first? Well, we're going to find out. The PC used by our French sister site's editor, Vincent Alzieu, is now running Linux. The aim is that he'll spend at least a week without touching Windows.

"There isn't that much variety in the office: Florence, Romain and Sam all use Macs, while everybody else (a dozen of them!) run Windows. If you add the non-journalist staff, they're all on Windows too, although they do occasionally use other OS for other jobs. Tristan, meanwhile, uses a mixture of Windows and OS X.

"And what about GNU/Linux? Just one of us the whole time: me! Other people do use it now and again, notably to surf the web without having to watch out for viruses and other problems, but they're all Windows-users at heart. But having heard so many times that Linux is now a mature system, and doesn't need to be any more complicated than anything else, Vincent wanted to try it too."
