Zemlin: The Next Battleground for Open vs. Closed? Your Car (Wired)

Wired features an editorial from Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin, who writes about the emerging competition in the automotive software platform market. "As automakers get into the computing business, the biggest hurdle they have to overcome isn’t each other – it’s consumer expectations driven by the rise of ubiquitous mobile computing. This is where I’d argue the battle between open and closed is going to play out the hardest in coming years … the next OS wars." As one would expect, Zemlin highlights the benefits of openness, and Linux in particular.
