5 Technologies that will shape the future of Linux

Filed under
Sci/Tech

I like to contemplate the technology of the future and there are some things I think will be very important in the future of Linux. Following a small list of 5 technologies that will in my opinion shape the future of linux.

1. The rise of the MID

The Mobile Internet Devices (MID) will eventually merge completely with the personal computer, the personal computer and ultra mobile pc's are already coming closer to each other in usage possibilities. There are predictions for the global MID shipments to rise to 416 million units in 2012. This is a very diverse market which has no common interface defined yet. This is a big change for Linux. While Linux doesn't have a strong history when it comes to interfaces, being extremely flexible and modular it is a best fit for this devices.
