Wsoft Virtuozzo for Linux 3

| This software may reallocate the resources to meet the changing loads. Unique
| VPSes can be designed to control end-of-year or end-of-month scenarios, or
| even other unusual or infrequent situations. Each one can then be preserved
| until needed, saving resources and time. But, all the servers should be
| running the same operating systems. The Linux host can only assist the
| virtual servers that run Linux. But this isn any problem for producing
| environments, where the requirement is to run systems that are stable, on
| various servers and control large volumes of traffic with several mixes and
| workloads. In such types of scenarios, Virtuozzo plays the job well.

Cooking with Linux - Still Searching for the Ultimate Linux Distro?

,----[ Quote ]
| Why does a person install one Linux, then another, and then yet another?
| Because a person can, of course! Such is the nature of choice, and Linux
| gives you a choice . . . and what a selection.
|
| What distribution are you loading up today, Franois? MCNLive? Very nice, and
| compact, too. When you get a chance, you should copy it to your USB key. That
| way you can always carry a live Linux distribution with you. Quoi? You're not
| sure if this is the one. I see. Yesterday, you were running OpenSUSE 10.2,
| and the day before you installed both Debian Etch in the morning and Kubuntu
| Feisty in the afternoon. Last week, you managed Fedora Core 7, CentOS 5,
| Mandriva Corporate Desktop 4.0, Slackware Linux 12, and a half dozen others.
| Are you having trouble finding something you like? You like them all but you
| just can't choose, eh?

| If Linux is your cup of tea, youl find support for Red Hat, Ubuntu, SUSE,
| Mandrake, and more. You can also install Novell Netware, Solaris 9 or 10,
| FreeBSD, and MS-DOS systems. Even 64-bit releases of Windows and some
| families of Linux, such as Red Hat and SUSE Enterprise Linux, are supported.

Is virtualization where Linux will top Windowserhaps stealthily?

| If this scenario plays out, Linux will return to its roots as a stealth OS.
| IT managers brought Linux into IT shops through the proverbial back door to
| use for applications that didn need top-level approvals. While it moved up
| to a more visible position in data centers, Linux also infiltrated cell
| phones and numerous other devices without fanfare. Today, Linux appears to be
| a front-runner as ISVstop OS choice for virtual appliances. Perhaps even
| Microsoft resistance is futile.

The importance of open source in hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Having a solid base on which to build will also help new innovations come to
| market, since those makers will only have to concentrate on what new. It
| will also enable new competitors to exist, since they won have to hold all
| the IP of their new designs.
|
| The open source hardware movement, in other words, has barely begun.
