How Versatile Is Linux? Three Examples

Filed under
Linux

When it comes to versatility, I think Linux wins hands down. You can find it in many things now from cell phones, cars, TVs and many other gadgets. Way too many to be able to name in a small post. But today I want to point out three examples of Linux versatility all having had new releases in the past few days.

I am referencing them from the terrific website DistroWatch. In fact their announcements of new releases all were posted on the same day. A quick disclaimer: I have not used these distributions yet but after researching them I think they are good examples for this post.

The first is Redo. A specialty distribution created with a focus for backup and recovery. It is Ubuntu based, a live cd and also can be a disaster recovery tool.

It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
