For Mobile World Capital's blog, I was asked to write an article about the impact of free software in the history of mobile. This is it:
«Today Apple and Google dominate the market of mobile operating systems. In a few years, these companies have gained privileged positions in the telecommunications market, overshadowing the terminal manufacturers. Motorola Mobility is now in the hands of Google. But, ironically, the computer industry owes much to the phone industry. Unintentionally, AT&T created the operating system that is today ruling the world, from mobile phones to supercomputers. Or, if you will, the key programming language of the last 40 years. While doing so, they also planted the seed of the free software».
