The Linux Foundation is celebrating the end of a great year for Linux. Demand for Linux talent in the marketplace is growing, the number of people who attend Linux events worldwide is growing, the use of Linux and Linux variants is growing, the Linux community keeps on getting bigger and bigger.

To mark the end of a great year, The Linux Foundation rolled out its end-of-year video. It is entitled “Linux 2013: Changing the World One Line of Code at a Time” and it is embedded below. Enjoy!


“In the Linux community we love predicting that ‘this is the year of Linux in cars, or in gaming, or yes, even the desktop.’ But in fact, this was the year of Linux in everything. From smartphones, tablets, consumer appliances and cars, to the open cloud and high-performance computers, to gaming platforms and more, Linux was, and is, literally everywhere. It’s the software that is running our lives,” said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation.

“It was a phenomenal year of growth for Linux. It is the fastest-growing operating system in the enterprise where it’s supporting the latest advancements in cloud computing, big data, storage, power and more. Linux is also being used to bring new technologies to consumers on their phones, tablets and even into their living room and kitchens (TVs, refrigerators and more). And, some of the greatest advancements in high performance computing this year can be, at least partially, attributed to the help of Linux,” added Director of Communications & Community at The Linux Foundation, Jennifer Cloer.

The Linux Foundation’s end-of-year video features a nice collection of quotes that showcase the importance of Linux and open source software. Can you guess who said these quotes this year?
