LinuxCon kicks off on Wednesday and I'll be there to report on the keynotes, the news, the fun stuff. To kick it off, the Linux Foundation sent out this then-and-now graphic of how far Linux has come in its 20 years. Note the number of lines of code, the numbers of patents and the number of "Linux-based" cell phones out there (thanks to Android). The only area where Linux lags is desktop adoption, but who knows? Maybe we'll see a big change there in the next few years as well.
