Here is the last part of the LinuxCon gleaning with my final impressions of the show. Ok, where were the main points? The answer to a big question: How the Linux Foundation defines their favorite product, has been shown, on the third day of the LinuxCon in Hall 1.
“Linux is sharing”
Maybe I did not understand until this LinuxCon. Now the meaning of linux is clear and which has many benefits for the world community. This results in a benefit to all who participate in joint projects and ultimately for all those who use the software. Behind this are very clear commercial interests. So beautiful and easily accessible Free Open Source software for users like me is knitted. Ultimately time and money is needed to offer good solutions. “Sharing the best getting the most”.
Live long and prosper with linux
A good example of sharing, which gives each one clearly apparent advantage, is the world’s current medical project OpenMRS. So free open source software even saves human lives. This had a bit of an exaggeration, but was fact. If someone thinks, however, continued to think about the topic really results from the sharing thoughts a saving of work and life, so that progress of projects can be greatly accelerated. It’s almost a challenge not to be more euphoric at conferences like these.
Linux Foundation brings all together
This collaboration, which connects even competitors, is possible only through the free and open architecture of Linux.
And here is particularly the work of the Linux Foundation mentioned, which is responsible for one of the latest additions to the Linux kernel and love the community support through training and projects. Congress Similar events like the LinuxCon / CloudCon / Embedded Con contribute to the good image of the Linux Foundation in on. People who beat me, but I like the Linux Foundation and the work of the people who stand behind it. From marketing area over the Organizer to the officially employed kernel developers.
The cloud system you can trust
The present and future is in the cloud.Ensure, as in the company’s WAN cloud technologies for an efficient workflow while safety aspects are not ignored, showed impressive Karlitschek, founder of OwnCloud. Prior to the LinuxCon he answered already been a few interesting questions in an interview, which you can read on my blog.
HP Helion is based on the OpenStack technology. This should lead to significant increases in productivity within a company. Cloud makes it possible.
Billions of dollar for Free Software?
Why should companies invest billions to develop software whose open source?
Is not that a contradiction? How can companies invest with strong commercial claim only so much money in free software? It’s simple. Even free software needs to be developed, adapted and used strategically correct. Open source is for many companies become an important economic factor, especially for the big players.
Linus Torvalds: Only authentic with this symbol
The Linux Foundation was aware of the popularity of their signboard and Linux creator Linus Torvalds and so they used a gimmick to provide the expected masses with a souvenir. A magic box with flash mixed own photo digitally to a stored Linus Torvalds photo. Well, if you like it.
“Is it a Nexus 4?”
A true Linux enthusiasts is of course not satisfied with a copy, but only with the original. On the 3rd day there was Linus’ interview and i could change a few words with him and … shoot a souvenir photo. Quote Linus: “. Oh its white Is it a Nexus 4?”. No, my Nexus 5 was responsible for the more or less considerable Blog Photos of LinuxCon.
Here, as promised, the third part of the interview with Linus Torvalds.

Open Source Blockbuster
ıllıllı These were the three days as a guest of the Linux Foundation in Dusseldorf. Three days of input, getting to know the absolute open source specialists and with known industry giants up close. If again a similarly good opportunity arise to visit my favorite show, I’ll be back. ıllıllı
