[News] 2010 Looking Like an Excellent Year for GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Looking forward to 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Your editor, not generally known for his good 
| sense, has long made a tradition of putting 
| together a set of Linux-related predictions at 
| the beginning of each year and posting them 
| for the world to see. There is no particular 
| source of inside knowledge behind these 
| predictions, and no real reason to give them 
| more credence than is merited by much of the 
| material found in one's spam folder. Still, 
| it's a fun exercise in pondering how things 
| could go and trying to guess what the 
| important themes will be. 


A Decade's Worth of Linux Goodness: Top 10 Linux Planet Stories 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| The Number One most popular story of 2009 is 
| Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols' How Many Linux 
| Users Are There (Really)?.


The decade in management ideas

,----[ Quote ]
| 6. Open source technology. Purist geeks may 
| point out that the concept of “open source” 
| technology developed in the late 1990s. But it 
| was in the last decade that the model spread 
| beyond software code. How many things have 
| been “wiki’ed” since Wikipedia launched in 
| 2001?



Open source in 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Google, on the other hand, has done wonders
| with its Android OS which is now right up
| there with the likes of the iPhone and is
| getting better all the time. Android will,
| without a doubt, be in the headlines
| throughout the coming year as Google takes
| other mobile makers on head-to-head.
| But open source will also start appearing
| on devices other than just mobile phones.
| Google's Chrome OS and the Moblin OS are
| just a couple of the viable, Linux-based,
| alternatives for netbooks that will start
| to become important in the coming year.
| A couple of years ago Linux look poised to
| take over the netbook market but Microsoft
| managed to claw back its dominance in this
| market with Windows XP.
| This time around Microsoft may not be as
| lucky. There are indications that Linux now
| has its second wind and, together with a
| strong mobile phone presence, is ready to
| give Microsoft a serious fight in the
| ultra-portable space.
