Happy Birthday, Linux Project -- this week you turned 24. The Linux OS has grown up everywhere. Its code and the open source model are found worldwide. People often use linux without knowing it -- when they search on Google, buy metro tickets or surf the Web. Linux powers all of that infrastructure. Linux travels worldwide on airplanes, and it's embedded in many of the smart devices that bring ultra convenience to our homes and cars. It runs our WiFi routers and our Android phones and tablets.

Excellent article and is right on with probably 90% or more of many businesses today that are enjoying the use and freedom of open source. Let us not forget that Linux is also a result of the GNU General Public License, developed by Richard Stallman, which is the driving force of open source software, which has an even larger affect on today's computing.
