Open source is fundamentally changing technology and redefining the tech industry, said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation, in his keynote at OpenStack Summit in Paris. On every layer of the technical stack, whether it is networking, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, or web frameworks, he noted, there is a hot open source project that is defining that particular category. "If you don't have an external R&D org at your organization, you should start doing that right now," Zemlin told the audience. "The question to ask is: Are you ready for the next open source blockbuster?"

A new IBM blog by Adam Jollans, Program Director, Cross-IBM Linux Strategy, IBM explains how new workload demands and greater hardware heterogeneity are placing Linux at the heart of IT innovation. Linux used to be the commodity play, doing the same for less to help improve the bottom line, Jollans notes. But today, more than ever, Linux not only offers a price advantage but is a major force fueling innovation. That is why IBM continues to vigorously support Linux.
