[News] Double-digit Gains for GNU/Linux Magazine

Hash: SHA1

Linux keeps growing market share.

| Not only is TuxRadar reporting that Linux Format magazine sales are up 13.3% 
| over the last year, but I also find that my local book stores shelves appear 
| to have much more Linux reference books on the shelves as well.  



The Total Growth of Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| The significance of open source has been continuously increasing over time. 
| Our research validates this claim by looking at the total growth of open 
| source. Our work shows that the additions to open source projects, the total 
| project size (measured in source lines of code), the number of new open 
| source projects, and the total number of open source projects are growing at 
| an exponential rate.     
| Our results open gates for further research around the growth of open source 
| and the acceptance of open source in industry and government. Future research 
| should explore questions like what factors are influencing this exponential 
| growth, how source code growth relates to the number of engaged software 
| developers, and whether or how long open source can sustain this exponential 
| growth.     


Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest 
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask 
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?  
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have 
| to go with that.


Open Source Projects double every 14 months!

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on the models developed for the "Exponential Growth of Open Source" 
| study we calculated the time required to double the number of projects and 
| the total open source code. It took approximately 13.89 months to double the 
| total number of open source projects from 1995-2006.
