Linux is the undisputed leader in Cloud computing. Yet, despite a heavy technical bend in the FOSS community the Cloud Compute topic is stillvery much dominated by hype. Even some talks and panel discussions advertised as technical often end up in impractical tangential arguments. The presentation will encourage thought and discourse in the current state of affairs by providing some examples of recent history showing where we asa technical community may not sufficiently stand our ground to steer thepublic discussion away from hype toward technical sound arguments. There may not be any quick fixes or easy answers, but there is certainly plentyof food for thought.
