One of the coolest things I get to do in this job is talk to the developers and business executives who are every day advancing the Linux operating system. Our Open Voices Podcast Series showcases some of the most influential people in the Linux and open source software community, including Linus Torvalds, Mark Shuttleworth, Mitchell Baker, and many more.
Today we posted our latest conversation in the Series. This one is with IBM‚Äôs Bob Sutor. Bob recently moved into a new position at IBM where he is focused on Linux and open source software. It‚Äôs an interesting time for him and IBM given the company‚Äôs 10-year anniversary this year of its commitment to Linux. The podcast sheds some light on the last 10 years for Linux, as well as what the future holds. This is just a taste of what I expect he will expand upon in his LinuxCon keynote later this year.
Hear what Bob has to say about the ODF debate, as well as some really thoughtful insights on desktop Linux and the cloud, among others topics.
