Big Changes Afoot in the Linux Market

Having covered Linux in the enterprise and business arenas for more than 10 years, I've seen some dramatic changes in the way the open source operating system is developed and used. However, never has there been as much change in the Linux landscape and market as right now, given the impact of cloud computing, devops (the confluence of application development and deployment), and open source software's maturity. The options for users and customers, as well as the challenges and opportunities for vendors, are now very different.


Cloud Computing, Like Open Source, Is Not Just Puff

Snuffing Out OpenSolaris Dims Oracle’s Light in FOSS Community
