Evolution of the Operating System

Filed under
OS

In Nature, we believe that diversity of living things allows the survival of the fittest to gradually change the ecosystem as conditions change. This is happening in information technology.

Recently, SAS issued a rather plaintive call for enterprises to limit the number of open source projects they use to a somewhat arbitrary percentage. That seems a rather obvious attempt to protest the rise of the open source R programming language for data science and analysis in a market where SAS has been dominant. But there is a good point hidden in the bluster: Using open source responsibly means knowing what you’re using so you can track and maintain it. Read more
