The answer may surprise you.
If you were looking for the answer to the question, “Which operating system best suits the needs of the most people?” you would be in for a treat.
You know the answer: the answer is not necessarily “Windows,” it’s not necessarily Windows 7 or 8.1.
It’s actually Linux.
That’s because while Linux has the best operating system out there, it’s also the one most of us use on a daily basis.
Linux is the operating system of choice for nearly all kinds of businesses, from software developers to IT administrators.
The Linux kernel, the open-source software that runs on the machines running Linux, is used by more than a billion people worldwide.
Linux is also the operating systems most often used by individuals, who use it as their primary operating system.
“Linux is probably the best platform to use for business applications,” said Matt Thompson, a senior manager with the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit that helps developers, organizations, and individuals build open- source software.
“It’s not just about the technology, but it’s about the people that use it.”
While the Linux kernel is the dominant software component in the Linux world, there are dozens of other open-sourced operating systems that run on the same hardware and operating systems.
There are also some proprietary operating systems from companies that aren’t so interested in competing with Linux.
“The open-world community, especially in tech, is very open and we want to see more diversity in our communities,” Thompson said.
“You know, it just makes sense to be more diverse.”
While Thompson said the Linux community is more diverse than other open source communities, he said it’s important to recognize that there are different interests in different open source projects.
“Some of the people are very different from one another, so we do not have a uniform approach,” Thompson told NBC News.
“Some people use the same Linux kernel as others, but there’s no standardized Linux kernel.”
As you may have heard, the OpenStack Foundation is a nonprofit group that works to make OpenStack more widely available.
The OpenStack project is also known for its focus on interoperability and open source software, but Thompson said that while the Open Stack community has more diversity than other communities, it has its own diversity.
“I think that’s the difference,” he said.
Thompson said OpenStack is different from other open sources because the Linux foundation is the organization that owns and manages it.
This means the Linux project is not beholden to any particular vendor or company.
“We have a strong vision that we want OpenStack to be as open as possible, so when we release patches, we make them available to all contributors,” Thompson explained.
“We’ve had hundreds of thousands of contributors, so there’s always a lot of overlap.”
In the end, OpenStack has been the foundation for the open world.
But as we see other open software ecosystems like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure (Azure), Docker (docker), and more coming on the scene, we’re seeing it getting more and more diverse,” he added.”
We see a lot more open source in the cloud, so it’s a huge benefit to have this open ecosystem,” said Thompson. “
OpenStack brings a great set of tools, but if you want to have a true open cloud, you need OpenStack.”
“We see a lot more open source in the cloud, so it’s a huge benefit to have this open ecosystem,” said Thompson.
“And then when you’re building a platform, you’re going to want a platform that is built on OpenStack and is open source.”
“OpenStack is really going to change the world in ways that no one has seen before,” Schallers said.
