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."
