10 predictions for open source in 2014

1. Open source will dominate corporate data

This will be spurned on by the continued adoption of the powerhouse Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5, but it will reach far beyond that.

2. Valve will prompt OEM hardware developers to open up

Valve has joined the Linux Foundation. One major benefit this will have is that they'll be on the forefront of getting OEM hardware developers and vendors to pump more resources into support for Linux.
