Microsoft Azure cloud using Dell containers: http://www.greenm3.com/gdcblog... HP also builds containers, fills them with compute/storage/network/power/cooling equipment and ships them to customers. It isn't all off-the-rack servers, customers work with HP/Dell engineers to get what they want. The big players saw Open Compute and jumped in on it too.
Lots of people use portrait monitors and the redesign makes the site horrible to use. So much wasted space! It's also just ugly with it's digg a version or two back/metro style. Slashdot. The new Digg. This boat is sinking if they move forward with this change.

I think he's talking more about how cloud (Specifically OpenStack) needs a Linus Torvalds. Some marquee name to hold it all together and not let it fragment too much. Have a cloud at the core... then openstack/cloudstack/nebula/etc are "distributions" that sit on top. You can make a piece of the software and it will run on any of the distributions since they are all based on a core that works for them all. http://news.slashdot.org/story/12/10/25/0128207/does-openstack-need-a-linus-torvalds
