Announcing Outreach Program for Women Internships for the Linux Kernel: Please Apply

I am pleased to announce The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job.  The official deadline for applying to OPW is May 1st.

Report: Enterprise Linux Growth Outpaces Windows

The Linux Foundation today is releasing its annual Enterprise End User Report. Because this is the third year we've surveyed the world's largest enterprises and The Linux Foundation's End User Council about Linux adoption, we're able to share some interesting trending data. But perhaps most interesting is the opportunity to understand how Linux is outpacing Windows in server revenue in the enterprise. IDC's latest quarterly tracker shows Linux growing at 12.7 percent year-over-year while Windows is stagnating at 3.2 percent year-over-year growth. In fact, the quarter prior (Q312), Windows was actually in decline while Linux was growing. This momentum is mirrored in our report: More than 80 percent of respondents plan to increase the number of Linux servers in their organizations over...
