Linux can compete with the iPad on price, but where’s the magic?

Yesterday I watched Apple’s Steve Jobs unveil the iPad. Jobs clearly can create revolutionary products; he can also produce spin like no one else. Yesterday was no exception.

His main message about the iPad was “a magical device at a breakthrough price.” He repeated this many times throughout the pitch and twice at the end. This phrase demands an honest response: how will Linux-based devices compete with the iPad?

How To Learn Linux From the Developers of Linux. (For Free.)

The Linux community is a pyramid. The base is comprised of millions of Linux users and system administrators. The second level is programmers who work with Linux; some of those developers contribute to the kernel, many do not. The top rung of the pyramid is the thousand or so kernel developers and maintainers who actively contribute to the kernel or other projects that make up a distribution.

Open source software development is innovative and exciting. It has produced the software that runs the internet; Linux, Apache, Firefox, and so much more. In addition to being technically innovative it also has turned business models on their head and introduced new software licensing and IP sharing concepts.

As we continue to innovate at the technical level it is equally important to discuss innovative legal concepts to allow the unfettered deployment and development of free and open source software.

Microsoft to Mobile Customers: Choice is a Bad Thing (and Linux will Lose)

Last week, David Coursey reported that Microsoft entertainment and devices boss Robbie Bach made the prediction in an analyst briefing that Linux on mobile will lose. Why? It’s choice is a bad thing for customers and that there is too much Linux in the mobile marketplace

What Linux Event Should You Attend (and Speak at)?

We just announced our event line-up for 2010 and the Call for Papers for CollabSummit. I’m very excited we’re offering the continuation of events that have been with us for awhile (CollabSummit, Kernel Summit) along with the second year of  LinuxCon.

This year LinuxCon will be held in Boston. Maybe people don’t realize that Boston is a hot-bed of the Linux and open source communities, with companies such as Red Hat and Novell head-quartered in the area. Besides Portland and San Francisco, there is probably no greater center of open source development than Boston.
