Remember when Unix was the only open source game in town?
Linux changed all that and today Open Source is big business.
Today Open Source is not just about server operating systems.
In a software driven world Open Source is everywhere from the Chip to the Application and from Mainframes to mobiles.
The latest CBR magazine covers in depth this software revolution.
We offer a guide to the phenomenon from Red Hat, report on the most recent Linux Foundation report on kernels 3.11 to 3.18, talk with a major transport user about open source use, hear from UK accountancy giant Sage on why Open Source wont’ work for the accounts trade and quiz IBM’s director of Linux and Open Source Strategy on where it is taking and being taken by the technology.
Oh, and read a list of Ethical Open Source Hacking Tools.
There isn’t a serious IT player that isn’t a member of a group such as the Linux Foundation or the many specialist open source groups.
It is no longer a case of if you use open source software – you already do: Android, anyone?
The question is how much you use it.
