Paul Graham on Open Source

Paul Graham, one of my favorite essay writers and author of Hackers and Painters, has written another wonderful essay on open-source and why corporations should take heed on why it’s worthwhile to use it:

A recent survey found 52% of companies are replacing Windows servers with Linux servers.

More significant, I think, is which 52% they are. At this point, anyone proposing to run Windows on servers should be prepared to explain what they know about servers that Google, Yahoo, and Amazon don’t.

Exactly. What I’ve been bitching about for years. Anyone care to explain their actions? Only knowing a GUI interface doesn’t cut it.

    Thank you very very much for the tip about holding down Control and scrolling up or down. That is absolutely amazing and also useful to me and I would not have found that on my own.
