New Linux foundation to close open source gap

As HPCwire reported recently, the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) and the Free Standards Group (FSG) have announced they’ll merge and form The Linux Foundation.

Successful proprietary software companies, for instance, do several important things well: backwards compatibility, promotion, interoperability, developer support, and more. …The Linux Foundation has been founded to help close the gap between open source and proprietary platforms, while sustaining the openness, freedom of choice and technical superiority inherent in open source software.
