    Canonical: Linux Mainframes May Power Software as a Service

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | If you’re a managed service provider or software as a service (SaaS)
    | specialist, here’s an interesting theory: Instead of purchasing dozens — or
    | hundreds — of x86 servers, you’re sometimes better off virtualizing your
    | applications on a mainframe.
    |
    | At least that’s the theory from Canonical Vice President Malcolm Yates, one
    | of the leading evangelists of Ubuntu Linux. Here’s why Yates believes
    | mainframes will play a growing role in the SaaS revolution.

    Ubuntu remixes desktop

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | One of the responses to this new problem is Ubuntu Netbook Remix, a version
    | of the popular Ubuntu Gnome desktop built to maximise the space available to
    | applications. Although Netbook Remix is still in development, it is now
    | usable enough to install on most netbooks for testing.

    Bringing down software margins with the cloud and open source

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Microsoft expects to lose margin as "cloud" competitors start to eat away at
    | its core businesses. Kudos to Microsoft for calling out the obvious.
    |
    | [...]
    |
    | Put more bluntly, there's not a chance in Hades that Microsoft will be able
    | to charge more for its cloud-based offerings, not when its competitors are
    | using the cloud to pummel its desktop and server-based offerings. This is
    | something that Microsoft (and everyone else) is simply going to have to get
    | used to: The go-go days of outrageous (software) margins are over. Done.
