"The Linux Foundation is now a year old. Formed by the 2007 merger of Open Source Development Labs and the Free Standards Group and home to Linux's creator Linus Torvalds, the Foundation promotes the use of Linux through support for kernel development; the development of common definitions, standards and best practices; and resolution of legal issues. At Red Hat Summit, SearchEnterpriseLinux.com got a chance to speak with Jim Zemlin, the executive director of the Linux Foundation, in Boston and got the latest on all things Linux."

"Zemlin: The Linux platform is experiencing prolific growth in all aspects of computing, from embedded system to mobile applications and high-performance computing [HPC]. Linux is everywhere, from Google to Facebook, [from] cell phones to cash registers and ATMs. It's growing faster than any other platform and increasing its overall share of the market. Computing is becoming a two-horse race between Linux and Microsoft, both growing at Unix's expense."
