I recently got to chat with Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. In case you were just rescued from a buried time capsule as part of a fraternity pledge, you probably already know that the Linux Foundation is a non-profit trade association that fosters the growth of Linux. It supports the Linux kernel development community, provides services to help companies adopt Linux, and hosts collaborative projects to solve problems in an increasing range of fields. It is supported by leading Linux and open source companies, including IBM, Intel, and Oracle.
Every year the Linux Foundation surveys large-scale enterprises to find out how they are using, and planning to continue using, Linux. Jim was kind enough to take a few minutes to walk me through the results of this year's survey. You can listen to our conversation here:
Here's Jim's blog, his Twitter handle, and a recent Ted talk discovered by Dan Lynch.
I took that photograph of Lower Yellowstone Falls from Uncle Tom's Trail while on a DOG Run in 2014.
P.S. My last day at Oracle will be May 31. If you'd like to stay in touch, use the links below:
