Interesting read. I particularly liked the bits about an Open Statistics effort (I wonder if that would include Smolt) and when he plead for people to look beyond the Microsoft Covenant and see their contributions. I especially am thankful to Novell for the contributions made by some of their programmers (Xorg programmers) and AMD for providing high quality totally open and free drivers for AMD hardware, particularly graphics cards, with the radeonHD X11 driver.

FYI, I have mailed him about Smolt (As I have done previously to many SUSE folks) and got a positive response. Let em followup and see if we can take this forward.


Awesome, Rahul! That's actually *very* nice to hear... I'm sure that if more consolidated data is gathered in terms of *real* usage numbers of Linux (along with what type of hardware is it being deployed) is a step in the right direction towards really accounting the ancient question "Who is using Linux, and how many users are there?". Especially useful for companies like Novell and Red Hat, I'm sure, but also for the desktop users, as this might trigger more availability to the platform of software that has no open source alternatives or cannot have an alternative (scientific, media, gaming), for the general public, plus the fact that Linux distributions are (at a long last!) getting to the point where standards are actually being followed and the conundrum that once was deploying applications is quickly being a thing of the past. Hopefully with support from other vendors as well as individuals, this will truly be a thing of the past.

Go, go Linux, and go go Fedora, for being a true proponent and leading distribution for Linux improvement, not only at the application level, but at the *social* level.
