| InfoWorld: What exactly is Debian?
|
| Murdock: Debian is a Linux distribution. It's the basis of Ubuntu Linux. I
| suppose the basic innovation of Debian was that it was developed by a
| distributed community, so we intentionally set out to build it in a
| distributed fashion, and it's one of the first open-source projects to
| operate that way.

The Two Truths of Tech Investing

,----[ Quote ]
| First, the Solaris operating system for Sun's servers was under assault from
| more lightweight alternatives Linux and Windows NT. Solaris was -- and
| arguably still is -- the better technology, derived from the Unix kernel that
| has dominated network computing in most forms since the 1970s.
|
| Yet before 2004, Solaris was expensive. Linux wasn't. Thus, when Red Hat
| (NYSE: RHT) came to be in 1995, prosperity for the upstart followed.

OpenSolaris Wants To Compete With Linux - Oh Yeah?

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday Sun Microsystems officially released OpenSolaris and suggested that
| it's going to go head-to-head with Linux as a Desktop Operating System.
| Solarisx86 is nothing new and has been around about as long as Linux but it
| is historically proprietary and closed source. It was also very
| hardware-finicky and performance was slothlike.
