Who is Linux Vendor?
Please tell me who is linux vendor? i know Redhat, Suse, Mandrake, Turbo Linux, Corel Linux... and more, they have their own Linux OS version, so are they really linux vendors? or Linux Vendors are company that make their own version and sell computer installed linux OS? or...
I'm preparing for an essay about Linux OS, my topic is "different linux vendors"!! but i'm not really know what it be! And what to be talk about? I just think i must deal with the best of Linux OSs for Desktop, Server, Applicaton... and talk about vendors who is the best..!
This is my first essay! so i don't know how to do, or how to prepare for an essay! I only have five days to do that essay for 5-7 minutes! Someone help me? thanks!!!!!!!!!
The word vendor means, 'the seller'
So Im guessing a linux vendor would be a company, that sells linux, either on its own, (Red Hat) or installed on a machine (Dell)
Juts a guess though, dont write a completely wrong essay because of me :)
i think u should ask if u can change the word vendor to distrobutions
which would make more sense as they are the ones that actually put them together and decide what to make part of it.
how many paragraphs will this essay be ?
And Vendors Of Linux? they are companies, that only sell Linux installed on a machine, right? So RedHat is not a vendor of Linux... it's true?

Tell me how many paragraphs is enough for an essay 5-7 minutes
Wal-mart is a vendor than? Apparently they sell cheap computers with Mandrake-Linux preinstalled. Also, Monarch Computers Systems, i.e. www.monarchcomputer.com
That's my two cents.
no one actually sells linux, they sell distros. a distro is the kernel/linux (one and the same(read "just for fun"(a biography of linux/linus torvalds))) and the rest is just packaging. sure wal-mart sells PCs with lindows preinstalled and DELL will preinstall usu. redhat but they're actually selling the pcs.
as for the setup of the essay
1st paragraph introduction
-mention open source and the book just for fun by david diamond
-mention that linus torvalds didn't create linux for any reason other than fun and testing the limits of his computer
2nd paragraph linux as a server
3rd paragraph linux as desktop
4th paragraph concuslion
check out this site
it sumarizes the book
make your thesis something about linux being a good desktop and server
-all uses of computers fit into catagory of client / server / piece of junk(rare - paperwieght, murder weapon, etc.)
My essay just is apart of a discussion about Linux, and my topic is about vendors of linux! There are many Topics: what's linux, history, Application area, furture of li... So i don't want to write more than my topic is
Now, I think Vendors of linux are the company that make Linux Populate around the word, contain comp package Linux (RedHat,Suse..) and comp
sell machine (DELL)
Do u know which vendors to talk about?
