Linux officially turns 26 today. While Linux has never grabbed huge market share, it's always been there in the back ground and currently has over 12,000 contributors and over 1,300 companies are distributing it, which is a pretty impressive feat for a free operating system. Medium has the story.

Fast forward to today and Linux has more than 12 000 contributors from over 1300 companies that contribute to the Linux kernel.

The Linux Foundation released a fairly detailed progress report, including an infographic which I was tempted to include here but you can view it in it’s original context here.
