Jim Zemlin and the Linux Foundation: Looking after Linus

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Foundation was formed in 2007 by the merger of the Open Source
| Development Labs (OSDL) and the Free Standards Group (FSG), and sponsors
| Linus Torvalds financially so that he is free to focus on his altruistic,
| albeit commercially beneficial, task.
|
| Jim Zemlin, Linux Foundation's executive director, is the man charged with
| managing an organisation that appears to have only the noblest of goals – the
| betterment of open source software, for the good of all. As well as
| sponsoring Torvalds, its other aims include fostering standards around Linux,
| providing a fund to contest any legal issues and managing the Linux \
| trademark.

Better Than Beach Reading: A Linux Starter Kit

,----[ Quote ]
| Summer may be a time for some to lie in the hammock with a margarita, but if
| your inner geek is whispering "is that all there is?" over and over again,
| you might be ripe for a project. How about making that shift to Linux you've
| been dreaming about? It's fun, it's cool and -- believe us -- it's not that
| hard.
