"IBM is celebrating more than a decade working with Linux, and Dan Frye was the co-author of the original IBM corporate strategies for Linux and open source. Dan today is vice president of Open Systems Development and will be keynoting at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in just two weeks. He shares with us today some of the insights he has gained over the years and how they relate to the opportunity for Linux in the decade ahead.

"You're keynoting at the upcoming Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit and are a board member of the organization. How has the Collaboration Summit evolved over the last few years and what are you looking forward to at the event this year?

"Frye: The collaboration summit has evolved along with Linux itself -- Linux use continues to expand and the Collaboration Summit has broadened its scope to address this wider constituency. This event brings together active representatives from throughout the Linux ecosystem: leading users from a variety of industries, key Linux developers, system vendors, software/application vendors, and more. The Collaboration Summit has become my favorite annual business meeting. It is a refreshingly down-to-earth, yet effective, forum for that diverse set of communities to interact."
