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

HP announced on Aug. 18 that it would dramatically
revise its strategy toward cloud-based services. As a result, the
world's largest PC maker said it would try to find a buyer for its
PC division and also would kill off production of webOS devices
such as the TouchPad tablet, which sold dismally upon its release
less than two months ago.
It might be a smart move by Samsung for several reasons. First,
HP no longer has any real negotiating leverage, so Samsung probably
would get webOS at a discount.
