Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I am spending the week in San Antonio, TX at a training course
filled with Linux system administrators with a wide range of
professional experience supporting large and small enterprise
environments. In speaking with many of these admins I am struck by
one common theme:
""I used Linux to learn about computers growing up but now that
I am a professional I run a Mac."
"In fact, almost 90% (I counted) of the admins were using a Mac
as their primary work machine to monitor and manage their Linux
servers and were given the option of running a pure Linux machine
if they so desired. Naturally, I was curious about this unexpected
trend and dug deeper to get a better understanding."
