Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"My ThinkPad switch was inspired by a desire to try out the
Ubuntu flavour of GNU/Linux, which I'd heard great things about. So
I downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu – Canonical, the
company that oversees Ubuntu, does two releases per year –
burned it to a CD and stuck it in the computer, and, a few minutes
later, I was up and running.
"At the time, I promised to document my joys and frustrations
with GNU/Linux, but a few months later, once I'd been soaking in
the OS for a while, I went back over my notes and discovered that
there was practically nothing to report on that score."
