Android and Linux Reuniting

Linux and Android are separate operating systems now, but that may change since Android code has been re-admitted to a staging area for inclusion the Linux kernel, according to an article by Cade Metz for Wired Enterprise, "Android and Linux Reunite After Two-Year Separation."

Metz quotes The Linux Foundation's Greg Kroah-Hartman as saying that a number of companies are now working to merge the Android code into the main Linux tree and that "for something like this, that is so useful to so many users of Linux, it should be in the kernel tree to help make future releases easier for us and the Android developers."

The Linux Foundation Plans Enterprise End User Summit

The Linux Foundation will hold its Enterprise End User Summit April 30-May 1 at the New York Stock Exchange in New York City. The event will bring together high-performance end users with the highest level Linux community developers CTOs, architects, IT representatives, and kernel developers to advance the features most critical to using Linux in the enterprise.

The two-day conference will provide a unique opportunity for education and interaction, giving end users the opportunity to learn about upcoming developments in Linux to maximize their investment, and also providing end users with a direct connection and voice to the most senior members of the kernel community.
