+ 0 Votes I expect you know this TechExec2 7 years ago Web hosting services tend to lag behind because they use distributions packaged by 3rd parties especially for use by web hosting services (example: www.swsoft.com and Plesk). They are integrated with additional software specific to web hosting (remote management, measurement, shared hosting, etc).

I hardly ever need to use the command prompt to do whatever I want to do on it. + 0 Votes Is this NOW LEFT TR Updated - 7 years ago not the enire reason why Linux has not taken off in the corp world as hoped? So many versions, distributions from multiple vendors. I know that this is what makes the essence of Linux but it also stops the CEO types from wandering down the path.
