Six articles that will teach you more about Open Source

Here is a little bit of insight into these “outsiders” inside Microsoft.
  • Linux popularity across the globe – For many, Linux goes hand in hand with Open Source. The Linux landscape is constantly changing and has a strong community of both developers and users. But where is Linux the most popular, and where are the different Linux distributions the most popular?
