I am proud to say that the Linux Community now has a place to land--a single place--and a great one at that: [URL="http://www.linuxfoundation.org"]The Linux Foundation[/URL]. You don't often read encouraging words from me about consolidations, mergers, buyouts and strategic partnerships but when they make sense for everyone, you do. As everyone knows by now, The Linux Foundation has [URL="http://linux-foundation.org/weblogs/press/2009/03/03/linux-foundation-to-build-new-linuxcom-community/"]scooped up[/URL] Linux.com and is taking over support for the site from [URL="http://www.sourceforge.net"]Sourceforge.net[/URL].

[URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]microsoft.com[/URL] is the one-stop shop …

There's no denying its use is on the rise and, in fact, the Linux server market is predicted to extend into the tens of billions over the next few years. Clearly IT professionals with Linux skills will continue to be in high demand. If you want to learn new skills to stay competitive in the IT industry or simply hone the ones you have, take a look at the [URL="http://events.linuxfoundation.org/training"]Linux Foundation Training Program[/URL].

Microsoft products have always presented a paradox for organizations. On one hand they seem to be universally derided. On the other, they remain the corporate standard. Open source, SaaS/online and other alternatives have had a hard time gaining widespread traction in large organizations.
