How much importance do you place on your OS?

A few months ago, I ended up installing Linux on a few of my computers, leaving Windows on the others. This isn’t the first time, either, having tried various distributions of Linux time and time again since about 2007.

Customers, Community, Containers?

This may sound like a game of ‘spot the odd one out’ to you but the combination of those three words actually does make a lot of sense for the coming week. No, we are not going to put our customers into containers 🙂 Instead, we’re inviting our customers to join us as we gather in Boston […]
