[ Thanks to Linux User & Developer magazine for this
"Jim Zemlin is the executive director of the Linux
Foundation. In this capacity, he heads up the efforts of the
Foundation by bringing important people and organisations together
to fix problems. This past April, we caught up with him again while
playing his role as Linux User's guest editor in this our centenary
issue, and checked in on those topics.
"Perhaps the single biggest change since our first interview
with Jim has been the widespread popularity of Linux on handheld
devices, mostly thanks to the Android platform. But that's not all
that has changed. Linux has continued to grow in popularity around
the world, and recently Zemlin jokingly referred to criticising
Microsoft as similar to "kicking a puppy".
