Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"10. Value - Linux has value to a worldwide group of consumers.
It runs most of the world’s mission critical websites and is
the platform of choice for server virtualization.
"9. Less Hardware Overhead - You can still run world class
websites, applications, and services on a machine that is outdated
by today’s standards. And you have the added bonus of being
able to outrun those applications compared to their Windows
"8. Active Development - Linux is actively developed meaning
that new hardware drivers are available as soon as a new device
hits the market and improvements are being made on a daily basis to
the kernel and supporting code. No need to wait two or three years
for the next belated and bloated version from the other guys."
