Win Free Linux Loot: Who Said This?

The Linux Foundation today is premiering its end-of-year video, Linux 2013: Changing the World One Line of Code at a Time.

It was a phenomenal year of growth for Linux. It is the fastest-growing operating system in the enterprise where it’s supporting the latest advancements in cloud computing, big data, storage, power and more. Linux is also being used to bring new technologies to consumers on their phones, tablets and even into their living room and kitchens (TVs, refrigerators and more). And, some of the greatest advancements in high performance computing this year can be, at least partially, attributed to the help of Linux.

We hope you will join us in celebrating 2013, because it is all of you who are making this happen. There is no other technology that is built by all of us for all of us. Together, we’re able to literally change the world, one line of code at a time.

So, give this new video a look and tell us which quote inspires you and who you think said it. Share your thoughts in the comments below and/or play our quote guessing game using the #Linux2013 hashtag on Twitter, Facebook and Google+  for extra entries into the contest. Winners who are randomly chosen by drawing on January 3 are in store to win some cool Linux loot, so get to guessing.

Cheers to you and the year ahead!

    There's some great quotes on there, and I must say I certainly agree with Linus on this specific one. "I'm aiming for something higher" - Richard Stallman "Open source is the correct way of doing complicated systems and getting things done right" - Linus Torvalds "Open source is everywhere. Now it's time to take it to the next level and make the world a better place" - Mark Hinkle Happy holidays!

  • Pablo R. Dinella Said:

    I recognized Torvalds, Newell, Stallman and Shuttleworth quotes, but I think that the most prominent one is that from Newell, who made a surprise to us revealing that the Valve's future is on Linux!

  • Bryan Said:

    The quote ending in "Done right" is Torvalds The quote ending in "What's possible" is Shuttleworth The quote ending in "Rise to a challenge" is Stallman The last quote ending with "Like Linux" is Eben Upton of raspberry pi fame.

  • Alex R. Kralie Said:

    I recognised Stallman, Torvalds and Shuttleworth, but I didn't hear Gabe Newell. Where is he in this?

  • Levente Kurusa Said:

    "Its gonna be interesting to see whrre this goes..." line is Sarah Sharp :-)

  • Niklas K. Said:

    „I'm aiming for something higher.“ - Richard Stallman. Truly inspiring words from a truly inspiring man.

  • J. Austin Rodriguez Said:

    Brad McCredie, IBM: "Linux is not just another OS any more than the Internet is just another network. It is a way to develop. It is a way to do things that couldn't be done otherwise."

  • J. Austin Rodriguez Said:

    Professor Eben Moglen, Columbia University and Software Freedom Law Center: "In 25 years of doing this work, I have never seen us fail to rise to a challenge (that can be defined in those terms.)"
