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

[ Thanks to Ken Hess for this link. ]

"This whole Android situation began about two years ago when I wanted a tablet computer and started looking for one. I didn?t want to plop down $600 on an iPad but I didn?t want to settle for a tablet that wasn?t going to meet my needs as a real portable computing platform either.

"The topic arose again about two months ago, when Jason and I were talking about tablets, the new iPad 3, Android tablets and the general state of mobile devices in the workplace. From that conversation, I decided to write, ?Why I?ll never own an Android-based anything? and followed it up a few days later with ?Android angst revisited. The saga continues.?

"I received much negative commentary over those two posts in the form of emails, Google+ rants, comments in the Talkback sections of those articles and on other websites. It was both stimulating and irritating to see so many people tell me how wrong I was for having rejected Android devices. You see, I eventually chose to purchase an iPad 1 and an iPhone 4."
