Anniversary of First Linux Kernel Release: A Look at Collaborative Value

The Linux community often recognizes two anniversaries for Linux: August 25th is the day Linus Torvalds first posted that he was working on Linux and said “Hello, everybody out there…” and October 5th is the day he released the first kernel.

To mark the anniversary of the first kernel release in 1991, we look at some facts and consider the progress that has been made since that early version.

Learn Linux Administration with Linux Foundation Instructor Lee Elston

Lee Elston began teaching for The Linux Foundation in 2014, but he says, “I’ve always been teaching something, someplace…”

Elston has been working in the computer industry since 1978 with various hardware and software. Linux became part of his daily business in the early 1990s with applications running on kernel versions as early as 0.97. Currently, he teaches The Linux Foundation’s administration-related courses and is in the process of updating the Advanced Linux System Administration and Networking (LFS230) course.

How Much is Open Source “Worth?” Our New Report.

Can the principles and practices of Linux be transferred to other industries? We at The Linux Foundation certainly think so and apparently so does the industry. Over the last few years every major technology category has been taken over by open source. Many of those Foundations and projects are being hosted at The Linux Foundation or at other organizations like the Apache Software Foundation and others. Much opinion has been written about the proliferation of open source projects, but not about the value. We set out this year to do a simple code analysis to answer a question: What R&D value are the people who use these projects receiving? Today we've released a report that attempts to answer this question, "A $5B Value: Estimating the Total Development Costs in Linux Foundation Collaborative Projects." We've based our findings on a well known code analysis method called COCOMO to analyze all the code in our projects’ code repositories on Git. The results were impressive: As of last month, 115,013,302 total lines of source code were present in Linux Foundation’s Collaborative...

Exclusive Interview: HydroXphere’s Charlie Houchin

It’s not often we have an Olympic gold medalist speaking at one of our technical conferences, but that’s exactly what’s happening at the AllSeen Alliance Summit 2015.

As an avid swimmer growing up in North Carolina, Charlie Houchin spent his summers participating in many volunteer-run community swim meets. After he graduated from the University of Michigan, Houchin qualified for the 2012 London Olympics, where he won a gold medal in the 4x200 freestyle relay. At the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona, he won another gold medal in the same event.
