Linux

Things have been a bit busy in the Linux world this week. Besides openSUSE 12.3 Milestone 2 being released, ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 rolled off the assembly line, if not your tongue.

It is not only mainstream, open source is truly leading innovation in areas like cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things, and beyond. As we embark on a new year, I cannot help but reflect on the speed with which technology is changing. Rapidly delivering technology is about much more than just the technology – it is about people and culture. More than ever, this is why executives are looking at key technology companies – including Red Hat – as their partner instead of as a vendor. Read more
