CAOS 8, our community Linux report is out
,----[ Quote ]
| Timed perfectly (and somewhat coincidentally) between OSCON and LinuxWorld,
| we’ve just published our latest CAOS report, ‘The Rise of Community Linux.’
| Sounds like the community distros are ready to take over the world. Well, not
| exactly. However, we found significant and increasing use of community Linux
| distributions such as CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu (which although distributed
| by Canonical we still considered a community Linux because of its development
| community and availability in server form).
| After speaking to and reporting on various Linux vendors — in servers,
| embedded, mobile sectors and around the globe in geography — we realized we
| were continually referring to the pricing, support and general competitive
| pressures on paid Linux business from unpaid, community and DIY Linux
| distributions. The significance of these Linux options, and more precisely
| their cumulative effect, was confirmed in our discussions with Linux vendors
| and enterprise users.
This helps squash the myth that without corporations and their funding, there
would be no F/OSS.
