Linux Foundation Report

Following my post on VMWare’s acquisition of SpringSource, a friend of mine alerted me to the latest report from Linux Foundation. It contains various statistics on the Kernel development including contributors (both individuals & vendors). On page 11, it shows Red Hat as #1, followed by IBM, Novell, Intel

With all this investment and involvement, Red Hat’s virtualization strategy, and not to forget Xen and vendors like Citrix, I think competitive pressure on VMWare will intensify much more in the next 12 – 18 months…
