Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I use Ubuntu regularly, primarily as a server OS, and it's been
my primary desktop OS at various points since version 7. However,
being the geeky sort of guy that I am, I don't hesitate to either
fire it up in a virtual machine or just burn a CD and wipe out any
of the various computers that tend to float around my house and
install the operating system. This is all well and good for geeky
sorts of guys (and I mean "guys" in a very gender-neutral sense) or
for businesses that either need or want to use Linux.
"Most people just go to Dell, HP, or Apple, though, buy a
computer, and use whatever OS came with it until it dies. What can
System76 offer to make consumers order a $1500 laptop and use
Ubuntu on it until it dies?"
