About this post:This post was written for the Low End Spirit community, and will get published shortly on that site. This post is oriented towards those who are familiar with Linux and Open source. But I have focused more on the user feedback, market acceptance of the alternatives rather than the technicalities. The itself post turned out to be a 2,000 word article, and I thought it would be a cool idea to publish it as an audio blog. Bringing variation in the posts is also recommended by Problogger. I had participated in the Blogging groove Challenge some years back. It was immensely useful.
