Today is a very good day for Linux, particularly because we have Linux.com working again. I say this not exclusively because it was defacto offline for the last forever: the old one was ugly. Don't get me wrong, I loved the articles. However, if I wanted to send a friend to Linux online I would send them to ubuntu.com, not linux.com. That's not the case anymore.
It's not just that Linux.com looks amazing, though it does. It's the whole idea of a social community. Users of Mac and Windows live in a vertical environment: they send money up and down comes the software. We live in a horizontal environment: You have something I want so I take it and modify it and pass the modifications back to you. Project x needs to implement feature y? No problem, Project Z has that code and is glad to let you have it. I think that it's really telling how Linux.com is a social networking site, unlike the sites for Mac and Windows. The Guru Points idea is a great one, an idea that embodies Linux's meritocracy, and I can see this easily becoming the go-to place for answers in the future of Linux. We now have a central point where all users of Linux - regardless of distro - can come together and enjoy the commonality that we have gained by using ethically sound software.
Great job Linux Foundation. Keep up the good work.
