Linux: The Operating System of the Cloud

The Linux Foundation has released a white paper arguing that Linux is the operating system of the cloud: "Linux is the natural technology for enabling cloud computing: it's modular, it's performant, it's power efficient, it scales, it's open source, and it's ubiquitous. And, as the platform upon which the largest cloud infrastructures, in the world have been built, Linux - unlike other available operating systems - has little left to prove as a component of cloud infrastructures be they public or private."
