Linux happenings in 2007

Linux

This year promises to be a big one for Linux, at least according to predictions by analysts and pundits in the early part of this decade. Some examples:

* Linux will be installed on 45% of new servers shipped by 2007 (Meta Group, 2002).
* Linux will run on 6% of desktops by 2007 (IDC, 2004).
* Linux will account for 7% of the worldwide cell phone operating market by 2007 (ARC Group, 2004).

Whether or not these predictions pan out ("no" on servers, "close" on desktop, "maybe" on cell phone, I say), here's a rundown of Linux and open source happenings you can reasonably expect to see in 2007:
