How much is Linux worth
The Linux Foundation posted the estimated worth of Linux. According to them the kernel alone is worth 1.4 Billion and the entire OS is worth 10.8 Billion. Now the method they used isn’t the most scientific, but it isn’t a bad method either, especially considering there really is no fool proof method to monetizing Linux. You can see from the numbers that it is no small task that the Linux OS exists and has come to be as powerful as it is. You also come to realize how much Windows and Apple must be spending to keep their own OS offerings going.
