April 26, 2019 / William Maher
A new survey has revealed the operating systems, communications protocols, cloud platforms and other tools used the most by 1,700 Internet of Things (IoT) developers. The survey was carried out by the Eclipse IoT Working Group, a not-for-profit open source software organisation, in conjunction with its members – including Bosch Software Innovations and Red Hat. About three quarters of survey respondents used Linux for edge and gateway IoT devices, while about half used Windows. Debian and its derivatives Raspbian, Ubuntu and Ubuntu Core were the most-used Linux distributions.
