A lot more people are taking up the entrepreneurial route these days. To the uninitiated it looks very easy; you are your own boss and can do whatever you wish. But someone who has already taken the plunge knows that being an entrepreneur is a lot tougher – whether working as a freelancer or the founder of a start- up, you will almost always find yourself donning several hats.

The Mozilla Foundation's aim to create a Firefox OS for mobile devices was not to take a quixotic tilt at the top end of the smartphone market.

LinuxCon Europe revealed a new Linux certification program, an expansion of IBM’s OpenPower program, and quips from Linus Torvalds on ARM and Raspberry Pi. Unlike the European edition of LinuxCon + CloudOpen, the North American version that wrapped up today in Chicago does not co-locate the Embedded Linux Conference. Still, there’s a lot more to Linux than circuit boards, industrial computers, and home automation gizmos. LinuxCon is the place to catch up on the larger tux universe of desktops, servers, and clouds.
