Many people would like to read your FLOSS story on LinuxCareer.com
FLOSS is penetrating the government sector of countries throughout the world. That holds true right here in the good ole U.S.A. A world that was intent on utilizing proprietary software is slowly changing its tune. The United States has not been as progressive in this area as some other countries, but over the course of the last few years, it has finally decided to jump on the train. The benefits are just too hard to ignore. While this topic is wide ranging, the focus of this piece will be on the Department of Defense (DoD) in particular.

Microsoft's Azure appears to be going through a tremendous growth phase. What was once termed by Microsoft as a cancer, Linux is propelling Azure to new heights. While Amazon Web Services (AWS) is clearly the leader in the clubhouse, Azure is no dysfunctional step child. And, this can largely be attributed to its embrace of its open source opponent. A shout out to Satya Nadella is more than likely warranted in this instance. From a distance, it appears his appointment to CEO in 2014 changed Microsoft's stance on open source software. And, he was the EVP of Microsoft's cloud business prior to this promotion. No more were attempts to bash a once rival. It instead started to embrace and integrate its foe. The results have been interesting to follow.

Once thought to be the next big thing, Scala has had a tumultuous past. Back in 2011, the Scala team won a five year grant by the European Research Council. At that point, it surely seemed possible that this was the next dominant programming language. However, five years later, some companies were halting their use of the language all together. Today, from the data we collect, it appears that it is having a resurgence.
