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

"I recently did a review of Ultimate Edition 2.8, a very large derivative of Ubuntu. Ultimate Edition 2.8 comes in more than one flavor though and this week I decided to take a look at Ultimate Edition 2.8 Gamers. Linux is not famous for gaming; gaming has actually been the Achilles heel of Linux. Ultimate Edition 2.8 Gamers strives to make gaming a bit more visible and accessible in Linux.

"Before I get into the quick look, please note that since the emphasis is on gaming the UE developers have removed some of the software more commonly found in the regular version of Ultimate Edition. For example, OpenOffice.org is not included by default when you boot into your UE 2.8 Gamers desktop. It is, of course, still available for download so you can easily add it to your desktop if you want."
