2007 Linux/OSS trends to look for

An expert discusses 2007 trends that IT managers should be aware of.

What trends or technologies IT managers should look out for in Linux/OSS in 2007?

Things I'll be looking out for:

  1. Will Linux/OSS increasingly be seen as offering a path to people seeking full control of their systems, as opposed to the increased vendor control envisioned by Vista and content providers?
  2. Will SUSE integrate with Microsoft in a way that gives it an advantage in the market over other distros?
  3. Will increasingly easy-to-use interfaces lead to an acceleration in Linux/OSS adoption?
  4. Will SaaS be increasingly offered as a way to escape the platform wars?
