How Far Can Linux Go?
'Success Breeds Success, and Linux Breeds Linux' says CA's Greenblatt

Linux has come far, but how much further can it go, will it go, might it go? Sam Greenblatt, SVP and Chief Architect, Computer Associates International, says—talking yesterday at a Linux Round Table on the Future of Linux. “If there is a limit,” Greenblatt adds, “we haven’t seen it yet.”

Michael Evans, VP Channel Sales & Development, Red Hat, explains it in this way: “I have a friend who is CTO of a tech company and his job involves talking to large business customers on a daily basis. 12 months ago he would “pitch” Linux, that was an objective of the company. Now he is still doing the same thing, but the first question he is being asked now, before he even thinks of pitching anyone, is ‘What is your Linux story? How can you help us get to Linux faster?’”

As to whether there’s a “glass ceiling” so far as Linux is concerned, a barrier consisting of particular applications that companies require and that Linux can’t supply, Linus Torvalds told the audience in attendance at the same Round Table — the occasion being CA World’s “Linux Solutions Day” yesterday in Las Vegas at CA World — that he'd changed his mind on the answer.

Torvalds' answer was very uplifting: “I used to think there was,” he said, candidly.

“I used to think that operating systems only worked well for technical applications. But we passed that point so long ago with Linux that I don’t any longer think there’s a glass ceiling. There may be a practical ceiling, where you have apps with social purpose needs. The point of OS is to have people come together.”

“When I see Linux running both on a Play Station and an automobile and on some of the largest institutions in the the world like Shell Oil I don’t know where it’s going to end," said CA's Greenblatt. "There’s no ceiling, and no floor either. We now have Linux on cellphones as well as Linux on six of the top ten largest supercomputers on Earth."

“Success breeds success,” Greenblatt concluded, epigramatically, “and Linux breeds Linux.”
