NewsForge has posted a new article: The business of making Linux easier to use
The comparative complexity of administering Linux servers is a huge adoption barrier for small companies that can't afford to hire their own sysadmins and don't want to rely on outside consultants for all configuration changes or routine server maintenance. NetMAX is building a business by -- as they put it -- "Simplifying Linux Servers." Their "underlying technologies" are Open Source, they say, but their GUI admin tools are proprietary. Is this combination the wave of the future both for companies selling Linux, as well as for companies that want to use Linux without hiring skilled sysadmins?
