Rackspace, Cumulus Networks and CoreOS Join Linux Foundation

Open Source 9

Mcusanelli (3564469) writes "Rackspace, Cumulus Networks and CoreOS have become members of the Linux Foundation to support open source networking, virtualization and cloud computing. The Linux Foundation said in a statement: 'From the virtualization layer to networking hardware, Linux and open source are critical to modern computing and a new generation of cloud services and applications. Today's new Linux Foundation members are part of this market shift and see open source as the lynchpin for optimal scalability, efficiencies, security and data center savings.'"

How is a foundation with the goal of growing the use and design of a free operating system becoming too powerful? How could it even BE too powerful? Microsoft is "too powerful". Apple is "too powerful". Google is "too powerful". Those three companies alone have more power individually than the Linux Foundation does, which is a group of companies and individuals working together to foster the growth and adoption of Linux...

This article was posted to Slashdot about 4 hours ago. 6 comments. 5 are jokes and the other one is a joke but the poster is just too stupid to realize it.
 
FOSS is dead on Slashdot.
