Are Linux Developers Getting Too Old?

Some members of the open-source community warn that unless more young developers begin working on the project, it could stagnate. During a panel discussion at the Linux Foundation’s Collaboration Summit, Linux kernel developer Andrew Morton admitted, “Yes, we’re getting older, and I think we’re also getting more tired. Amongst individuals in the development community, I don’t see the amount of same energy, enthusiasm and effort?I’m afraid I often see people ducking work which they would have happily jumped into 10 years ago.

The panel members discussed various ways to bring new life to Linux, ranging from better documentation to recruiting retiring baby boomers who need a hobby to showing younger developments the potential career benefits of working on Linux.
