City of Kenosha is a beacon for Linux

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Aug 2, 2005 7:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
In 1836, when the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, was just a wilderness settlement on the bank of Lake Michigan, and the roads were dirt trails, pioneers built a primitive lighthouse from the stump of an oak tree. They called themselves flamekeepers, and took turns tending the wood fire beacon that helped captains navigate the marshes in the fog and the dark. Almost 10 years ago, Ruth Schall and Tig Kerkman of the City of Kenosha IT department became flamekeepers of a different kind. Back then, Linux was an infant operating system, but Schall and Kerkman saw its potential and pioneered an entire city's technological infrastructure upon it, making themselves a beacon and a guide light for all those who would come after them.

Lunar Linux is an eye-opener, even for someone who has used many GNU/Linux distributions.
