How Much is Open Source “Worth?” Our New Report.


Can the principles and practices of Linux be transferred to other industries? We at The Linux Foundation certainly think so and apparently so does the industry. Over the last few years every major technology category has been taken over by open source. Many of those Foundations and projects are being hosted at The Linux Foundation or at other organizations like the Apache Software Foundation and others. Much opinion has been written about the proliferation of open source projects, but not about the value.

Happy Birthday, Linux. You've Taught Us Much.

Twenty-four years ago today, Linus Torvalds sent a message to the world. He said, “Hello, everybody out there…” and then calmly unleashed Linux. That message was received loud and clear.

The Potential of the Blockchain: LinuxCon Keynote Preview

For the past few years I have been fascinated by the rise of Bitcoin and the technology that underpins it: the blockchain. Like Linux, the blockchain is an example of the continued march towards distributed systems and technology. Trust is a central element of these types of systems and the blockchain can enable this through its unique technology. If we have unique person-to-person trusted transactions without the need for a centralized institution all types of innovation and efficiency can be unlocked, especially for those in the developing world.
