Linux Magazine’s Top 20 Companies to Watch in 2008

Who knows what the future will hold? Well, heaven knows we don't or we'd have already won the lottery a few times and retired to a private island somewhere. However, we can look at the past to make a few reasonable predictions-- such as the companies in the free and open source software community that are going to have a major impact on the market in 2008.

  • 3Tera - utility computing, virtual data center
  • Applogic
  • Alfresco's Enterprise Content Management
  • Centrify DirectControl integrates non-Microsoft systems with Microsoft's Active Directory
  • EnterpriseDB takes PostgreSQL, modifies it a bit with its own secret sauce to make it" Oracle-compatible"
  • rPath have paved the way to easy virtual appliances with their rBuilder technology and rPath Appliance program. You can even take rBuilder for a spin online to create your own virtual appliance foundation.
