The State of the Linux Union

What ever happened to that little OS that we used to hear so much about?

barry_klineWritten by Barry L. Kline

On August 25, 1991, Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux operating system, sent the fateful message to USENET announcing his creation. On August 25, 2012, the OS will be 21 years old. If Linux were human and an American citizen, it would then be old enough to consume adult beverages, carry concealed weapons (at least in Pennsylvania), and have all of the privileges of U.S. citizenship, with the exclusion of becoming the President. My, how our beloved OS has grown!

The Linux Foundation Releases Enterprise Linux User Report

The Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, has announced the release of its latest report, "Linux Adoption Trends 2012: A Survey of Enterprise End Users," which shares new data representing Linux’s dominant role in supporting cloud computing, "Big Data," and brand new, or "greenfield," deployments. The data in the report reflects the results of the second invitation-only survey of The Linux Foundation’s Enterprise End User Council as well as other companies and government organizations. The first Enterprise Linux survey and report were released in October 2010.
