Linux Foundation

More than 20 years ago, Linus Torvalds sparked an open source revolution with a short email declaring he was doing a new project “just for fun.” Today, Linux powers 98% of the world’s super computers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and tens of millions of Android mobile phones and consumer devices. In short, Linux is everywhere.

The Linux Foundation is here to help. By supporting the kernel development community -- including employing Linus Torvalds himself -- and fostering collaboration on a truly massive scale, the Linux Foundation unites thousands of curious minds in the free and open exchange of ideas. With this collective wisdom, people everywhere are using Linux to solve harder problems, innovate faster than ever, and change the way the world works together. 

The Linux Foundation is also here to help companies and individuals navigate the ever-changing landscape of Linux. From new member mentoring programs to advanced consulting services.
