DDoS attacks are increasingly coming at the hands of Linux botnets
Could this be attributed to the less defined OS structure of Linux in comparison to Windows? Dabbling in Linux, my experience has been that the terminal is a very powerful tool and could be leveraged to perform nearly any function that I could think of.

Application layer DDoS attacks still make up 60% of DDoS attacks today but they're increasingly being displaced by network layer attacks
I would still venture to say that aside from DoS utilizing DNS, the application layer attacks will likely be most effective due to their stealthy and slow nature. The network based can be mitigated at the ISP level or through scrubbing centers but I see many app layer DoS slipping through these mitigations.

83% increase of DDoS attacks
With the simplicity at which DDoS attacks can be executed I anticipate that there will be an increase to which this attack is utilized. Also, reflective dns is a very powerful method of ddos. The anonymity and amplification that can be performed during the query makes it perfect for DoS.
