From the Editors: Android developers all revved up and nowhere to code

From the Editors: You’ve come a long way, Linux

This month, as we do every March, we reported on the Who Writes Linux report from the Linux Foundation.

Microsoft has weathered the storm of Windows 8 criticism for more than two years, amid a tectonic shift away from desktop computing.
