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

"I've decided to start this blog and share my experience with
Debian sid/unstable, the development version of Debian GNU/Linux.
It's the leading edge, but sometimes also the bleeding edge of
Debian development. The stuff that enters this fast developing
repository spends anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years in it before
average Linux user sees it in form of a polished stable release
(Debian, Ubuntu or some other Debian Pure Blend).
"So, with Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" released exactly 7 days ago,
there has been an avalanche of new software in sid, all the stuff
that has been patiently waiting for the stable release to happen
before it's pushed to the new unstable branch that will become
Debian wheezy in about 2 years. Ubuntu users will no doubt see the
software slightly sooner, but for the adventurous of us, even that
would be too late. ;)"
