Google: Friend or Foe of Ubuntu?

,----[ Quote ]
| Google enjoys a pretty favorable image within the free-software community.
| In some respects, it deserves this reputation, as it strongly supports many
| open-source projects. On the other hand, Google is reluctant to open the
| code of most of its own software. Given this hesitancy, can we trust the
| company to be always on Ubuntu side?

Ubuntu Server receives positive reviews

| Ubuntu isn just for desktops. Behind the scenes, corporate IT managers have
| put Ubuntu to work on servers. Don believe me? Well, I can name names. I
| can also tell you up front that Ubuntu Server gets high marks for its
| corporate support; easy backups, installs and upgrades; documentation, and
| more.
| So I set out to find some IT pros who could talk about Ubuntu Server, which
| wasn hard. I just asked, ho using Ubuntu? in a
| SearchEnterpriseLinux.com newsletter. Here are some respondentsviews of
| Ubuntu Server, both positive and not-so-positive.



Review of Ubuntu 7.04 Server on Old Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 7.04 Server Edition provides a very easy way to get a LAMP server up
| and running quickly. The lack of SSH access as standard seemed strange for a
| distro focussed on ease of installation, but comes from the principle that
| the less daemons there are running, the less daemons there are to hack, which
| is understandable. Of course, it is then up to the user to configure Apache,
| MySQL and PHP, which can be quite time consuming. I think that Ubuntu Server
| is best viewed as a shortcut to a fully rigged server rather than an all in
| one solution.
