5 Technologies that will shape the future of Linux

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.

Initial impressions of PCLinuxOS 2014.08

I spend more time looking at the family trees of Linux distributions than I do looking at my own family tree. I find it interesting to see how distributions grow from their parent distribution, either acting as an extra layer of features which regularly re-bases itself or as a separate fork. New distributions usually tend to remain similar in most ways to their parent distro, using the same package manager and maintaining similar philosophies. When I look at the family trees of Linux distributions one project stands out more than others: PCLinuxOS. Read more
