| Technically, this isn't Ubuntu's first server release -- that one came two
| and a half years ago -- but this is the first one that is truly
| enterprise-ready, with a full specification sheet of features needed in

Ubuntu Eyes The Linux Server Landscape

| Earlier this month, Canonical took another step to raise its profile in the
| Linux server space: It released Landscape, a tool for installing, managing,
| and maintaining Ubuntu desktop PCs and servers. Red Hat and Novell offer
| similar tools; in both cases, however, the two companies' systems-management
| products are designed to provide the functionality -- and thus the
| complexity -- required to manage very large enterprise Linux installations.


Five Reasons Ubuntu Server Revolution Begins Today

| 1. The Windows Vista Debacle: Even Gartner finally admits that Vista is a dog
| and Windows is collapsing under its own weight. And in the ultimate
| statement, Dell actually began Ubuntu preloads on selected desktops the very
| year that Vista shipped. *
| No PC companies dared to take those types of actions when Windows 95 shipped.
| But Microsoft has badly miscalculated the market. Vista was big, bloated,
| slow and annoying when it arrived. Ubuntu Linux is fast, modular, tightly
| written and flexible. A few million desktop users have already discovered
| Ubuntu Linux’s power. Millions more will discover it through install fests,
| word of mouth, and Dell. * *
