Friday Linux Potpourri





linuxIt’s been another interesting week in the world of Linux and Open Source development. Several items have caught my attention today, so I thought I’d just do a round-up. Red Hat on another hiring spree, New Mandriva enterprise website, and the Free Software Foundation achievements are among the topics.

Red Hat Hiring Lots this Year

Red Hat stock continues going up and down, mostly up, and they have recently moved to a big new office in download Raleigh. According to WRAL, a local television affiliate in North Carolina, says, "Red Hat has grown by about 20 percent a year and is targeting $1.13 billion in revenue in 2013." Lee Congdon, Red Hat’s chief information officer, is quoted by WRAL as saying, "We have plans for adding 1,000 associates around the world, and some of those will be in Raleigh." Congdon further said that Red Hat employees work in 30 countries around the world and 20% of them telecommute. Red Hat looks like a winner and they just seem to grow stronger every year. Keep an eye on their jobs portal if you’re in the market.

New Mandriva SA Website

Charles Schulz blogged yesterday to reveal the new Mandriva enterprise website. It represents a major improvement all over in usability and appearance. In short, it has jumped into our decade. The layout isn’t too busy anymore and relevant links are easily seen and navigated. Schulz said the new site and look are "consistent with our efforts towards a better and clearer branding."

 

 

Free Software Foundation Accomplishments

Yesterday the Free Software Foundation licensing team published a brief report of their significant wins in 2012 and explains "why it matters for 2013." Josh Gay said, "we responded and resolved over 400 reports of suspected license violations and over 600 general licensing and compliance questions." This helps by allowing their newly trained "mercenary warriors" to gain "a ton of confidence, knowledge, and experience in a relatively short period of time" so they can take down any transgressors. They also made important strides in "organizing and improving our educational licensing materials" and in encouraging free hardware.
