Linus’ little project now cumulatively powers more servers, mobile phones and other embedded systems than any other operating system. Linux runs our economy and touches the lives of literally every single human being on the planet in one way, shape or form.

So where do we go from here? We’ll explore how the Linux and open source community can build upon their success for the betterment of technology and the world around them.
