A talk by Shrijeet Mukherjee
The talk will be about the Journey where Linux used to exist at the edge of networks, was the source and basis of application level innovation, but stopped at being a network endpoint. The talk will cover the steps that were needed, the ecosystem that needed to be built and the features we needed to pay attention to, to make Linux appealing to the Enterprise customer and appear in the core of critical networks.
