It was probably very expensive. Do you have books too? ;-)
If one thinks about how much resources people and businesses have invested in IT over the last 20 years, and continue to invest, and how little it is worth or useful after just a few years... it's insane. Computers systems that cost several hundreds of thousand dollars have simply been trashed, because there is absolutely no more use to it.So true.
Well, at least Oracle Linux is free. It does require some skill sets, but investing into people is a lot more useful and resourceful than investing into computer systems. I think that is something a lot of managers in IT have forgotten.Yes, unfortunately...
