Would-Be Linux Contributors May Get a Leg Up

,----[ Quote ]
| "The idea that working with the kernel community is hard, to me, is a myth or
| at least a misconception," Linux kernel contributor Jonathan Corbet told
| InternetNews.com. "It is only hard if you don't take the time to learn how
| the community works."

Building an Open Source Community

,----[ Quote ]
| There are many books published that explain how to build communities, but not
| so many explaining how to build a developer community, and hardly any which
| focus on open source communities. Some might say that open source
| communities "just happen", and that they operate on intuition and unwritten
| social rules, but this logic overlooks the vast quantity of open source
| projects that fail.

Linux Market to Triple by 2012

,----[ Quote ]
| 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. * *
