2013 Linux Predictions:
Brought to you by: System76
2012 looks like it might have been one of the best year for Linux in terms of generating momentum, and positioning for an amazing 2013.
As put by Michael Larabel at phoronix.com
Valve’s next-gen Linux console. This Linux-based console for the living room that’s designed around Steam is going to be huge. This is one of the most exciting milestones to look forward to for Linux as a whole in 2013. Like earlier Phoronix Valve exclusives, you can believe it now or wait and be surprised later, but this is the most exciting piece of Linux hardware that we should see in 2013. It’s exciting on so many different levels as you’ll see and is a huge growth opportunity for Linux.

OpenStack also represents the latest Linux battleground, with Red Hat, SUSE and Canonical all vying to support enterprise deployments. Linux is a big part of cloud computing – not only technically, but also culturally, and in conversations between vendors and customers.
