Announcing Exherbo!

| Open source is said to be about scratching your particular itches - and I've
| been working my butt off for the last several months along with a small,
| select team of developers doing just that.
| All our hard work have so far resulted in a very experimental linux
| distribution that's definitely not ready for users yet (or even developers)
| but does have quite a few interesting ideas and features.

2.6.26-rc3, "Another Week, Another -rc Release"

| "This time around, we have 60+% of the changes in drivers, notably
| drives/video and drivers/media, with some infiniband, networking and usb
| lovin' to fill things out," began Linux creator Linus Torvalds, announcing
| the 2.6.26-rc3 kernel.


Linux kernel developers have tripled in number

| The Linux Foundation (LF) has published a study on Linux mainline kernel
| development. According to LF, the number of Linux kernel developers has
| tripled since 2005, with many more companies contributing to the process
| (including, potentially, the latest new LF member, Adobe).


Linux Market to Triple by 2012

| Analyst firm Research and Markets has just put out a project on Linux-based
| server and client hardware sales, and is projecting that the market will more
| than triple between 2007 and 2012. *
| A market for a platform is not the same as an ecosystem for it, which is much
| larger in that it includes the cost of people and third-party software and
| services for the code that runs atop the platform. So the R&M Linux market
| numbers might seem a little small. In any event, the consultancy pegged the
| Linux product and services market for Linux running on servers and clients
| (but not embedded systems) at $2.4 billion in 2007. * *
