2011 was a big year for Linux, but then what year isn’t
a big one for Linux these days? …
Taken all-in-all, though, it was a great year for Linux. Whether
it was supercomputers, big data or smartphones and tablets, Linux
keeps growing. By this time next year, Red Hat will have become the
first Linux company to have recorded a billion dollars in earnings,
and, if you count all users on all devices, it just might be that
Linux will be the number one operating system of all.
