PC-BSD vs. Linux发行版:一场激战

日期:2007-01-26 作者:R0meal编译 来自:linux.chinaunix.net


  你要是现在都没有听说过PC—BSD,那你肯定是生活在山洞里的!虽说她在BSD桌面市场一帆风顺,但是直到她进入企业市场,事实就变得残酷起来,难道只能和Linux竞争?

  放弃普通用户,转投企业用户。过去,每当提到如何使得一个Windows桌面用户转移到Linux桌面,我一般推荐Xandros,但是现在看来,Xandors更多的是注重他们的企业级用户,普通用户已经处于次要地位了。

  我也看过那些使用过Xandros桌面版用户在使用过后的评价,但是Xandros的发行公司并没有着手解决这些已经存在的问题,他们的目标很明确,就是企业用户,普通用户他们看不上啦~

  桌面用户的新秀也不少,比如Novell和Red Hat公司,他们是传统的Linux的王者,因此,他们毫不费力的获得了不少的Linux桌面市场份额,因为事实上,Linux的市场很大,只是没有人来拓展。

  在对Xandros的失望之后,对Novell和Redhat公司的桌面系统也曾经抱有幻想,希望他们能够认真地考虑到普通用户的需求,比如增加新功能,改善软件的升级功能等等,但是他们没有做,尽搞些花里胡哨的东西,比如3D桌面,能有几个Linux桌面用户配备这么好的显卡,反正我是没有兴趣。

  但是在遇到PC-BSD之后,我改变了想法,虽说它现在也被商业公司收购,进行商业化运作,但是我对这个来自BSD派系的开源桌面系统一直抱有信心。我们现在可以看到一个非常有活力的BSD桌面系统,特别要感谢的是的来自BSD的灵活的授权机制,使得一些颇受诟病的GPL协议离我们而去。

  一句话,当微软和Novell公司开始胡搞,使得Linux阵营变得一团糟的时候,我至少还有我的选择,而且它是植根于Unix,想要我重投Windoze估计是没戏。

  所以,我认为PC-BSD目前的成果很大程度上是人们脱离微软影响力的结果,即使我们在自由软件和开源软件之间的的定义上差距很大,但是我要说的是,无论Linux社区还是BSD社区,他们奋斗目标和存在的目的都是非常相似的。

  (Review) - If you haven't heard of PC-BSD by now, then you must be living in a box. PC-BSD is perhaps the best thing to come to the desktop BSD world in a very long time. But unfortunately, it looks as if this fantastic distribution is following the rest of the pack and will be trying to locate funds by competing with Linux for business customers. Why should this matter? Check this out...

  Backing Away from Home User to Enterprise Linux. When I think of a good distribution that allows a user to transition from Windows to feel right at home, I used to think of Xandros. But today, it feels like they are so focused on keeping themselves above water that the home user is being left on the back burner.

  I have been reading about user after user seeing ongoing issues with Xandros Version 4. But instead of addressing issues from past releases, I feel like X-4 has been target almost exclusively at an audience who couldn’t care less - enterprises.

  News flash guys, Novell and Red Hat are the kings of the jungle in this realm. Therefore, in reality, I see little long term value in trying to get a piece of this pie when the home and business desktop market remains largely untouched within the Linux world.

  I have long since given up on Xandros on this matter, although I had hoped that they would actually offer some new functionality to their setup by expanding their application repository or something useful like that. Instead, they opted to offer 3D graphics for a limited number of video card users. Who cares? I don’t.

  But with PC-BSD, I was really holding out hope and to be honest, I still have some. Even with them being acquired by another company, I remain hopeful that they will continue to push forward and make it possible for novice users to continue their migration over to the PC-BSD desktop. The official word is that nothing changes. I sincerely hope not.

  Alternative Ways for PC-BSD to Generate Revenue. Considering the fact that the buyout is a done deal, I have no problems as long as they don't forget their user base. And the official word is that iXsystems will be able to provide businesses with the support they need to make this happen on a larger scale.

  But wouldn't be fantastic if they decided to take on the consumer market by opting to provide them with obtainable support for the everyday consumer? Not the intensive business side of support, but an affordable alternative for those looking to try PC-BSD, but are simply not in a position to pay the kind of money that would be involved with corporate level support.

  Why I Care About the Future of Free-BSD. My reason for showing interest in PS-BSD is because I believe it’s the best shot we have at seeing a viable BSD operating system being used on a typical desktop PC, period. And thanks to the freedom of its BSD license, a lot of the turmoil we feel on the Linux front is not going to affect them.

  In short, should things go totally bonkers with Microsoft and Novell and all hell breaks loose on the Linux front, I like to know that I have an alternative that still has its foot in the door with a Unix-like mindset. Going back to "Windoze" is not an option for me.

  So, yes, I see PC-BSD succeeding as an important step in getting people off of the Microsoft bandwagon. Even if we differ somewhat on the true definition of "free," most of the goals between the Linux world and the BSD world are pretty similar.
