Canonical to offer new Ubuntu Linux business support options

Interessante lettura, rivolta a tutti coloro i quali affermano, e lo hanno sempre fatto, che Ubuntu è una distro più pura ed umana, perchè a loro non interessa affatto il denaro, non interessa il business, e la danno a tutti gratis...
As you can tell from that list, we're talking high-end, enterprise-level support here. Surprisingly, for what you get, it's not that expensive. The minimum Ubuntu Advantage server price, which includes the legal support option, starts at $320/year per server. The whole package starts at $1,200, but if you want a dedicated engineer to call your own or support for a private Ubuntu cloud, you'll need to talk to Canonical about the final pricing.

There are two Ubuntu Advantage desktop support options. The first, which is for ordinary users, will run you $105 per desktop. The other option, which is for developers, costs $165.

In a statement, Neil Levine, vice president of Corporate Services at Canonical, said, "It has become clear as the use of Ubuntu in the enterprise increases, that businesses are now using Ubuntu in more areas of business than before, including as a cloud platform. Ubuntu Advantage provides the set of services that companies need to make Ubuntu a core part of their IT strategy. Flexible pricing and a choice of service levels means any business can realize what our customers already experience - that to optimize your Ubuntu deployment, engaging with the appropriate Canonical service is the easiest and fastest route to success."
Adesso, potete tornare pure, con i piedi per terra!

Pian piano Canonical sta uscendo allo scoperto.
Chi investe è normale voglia un riscontro economico.
Lui sicuramente vorrebbe diventare il Bill Gates 2 alla faccia di Linux.

Come ho sempre detto: Mandriva è una delle migliori distro presenti sul mercato. Il problema grosso è che non è pubblicizzata come "tante altre".
Basterebbe spendere qualcosina in più per la pubblicità(problema che potrebbe posri, visti i conti economici della società, solo un probabile futuro acquirente), per avere in cambio un riscontro economico.

Other Mandriva problem->Most of advanced mdv users in forums, like spanish blogdrake, are extremists and not support good critics comparing Mandriva with Ubuntu or Debian.
This type of users must be dissappear, not apport anything to Gnu/Linux.
They are idiots and they cut off the free thought.

What make's you belive that italian ( official-forum ) users are different ? :lol: , you are mibber and you know very well the war that
we do against this elements ....they are the inside enemy :( but the problem is not spanish or italian or other community, the problem is that this kind of elements are supported and protected by mdv officials ...( or by the most of the officials)
i think that if mdv turns into a community oriented distro ( suse and debian like), everybody has only to gain , but this are dreams
......
