Businesses across China are adopting Linux at a brisk pace. According to the latest figures from the IDC Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker (Q4 2012), Linux growth in the country outpaces the worldwide average where share has grown from 9.2 percent to 33.2 percent over the past decade.

The reason? Globally, businesses like those in China are looking more closely at Linux for new computing workloads such as Big Data, cloud and mobile. Linux is an easier and more cost effective choice than other operating systems, like Windows or iOS. Plus, it already powers most devices and key infrastructures such as smartphones, sensors, data centers, social media sites, and even automobiles.

My organization – The Linux Foundation – recently surveyed over 1,200 businesses for our 2013 Enterprise End User Report. We found that 80 percent of enterprises have long term Linux commitments, 73 percent are using Linux to run mission critical applications, and 72 percent are planning to use Linux for Big Data.

For reasons like these, it should be no surprise that IBM this week is opening its first Power Systems Linux Center in China. The company is working with Red Hat and SUSE at the center to help software developers put their applications on the Linux operating system using the latest IBM Power Systems.

Perhaps the most important aspect of the new center will be the focus on Linux skills development for clients, business partners, academics and students. The hands on training and support from RedHat, SUSE and IBM experts are certain to produce new software applications that we haven’t seen before. It can also lead to further innovation of Linux itself, which is one of the lasting benefits that will continue on through this center.

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
but I had to tell someone!

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in
which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!

Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to
my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
