Linux Foundation opens Korean Office
The Linux Foundation is opening an office in Seoul, Korea. Kwangjei "Daniel" Cho, former senior director of Haansoft, Inc., will be the Linux Foundation director of Korea.

The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux. Founded in 2007, the Linux Foundation sponsors the work of Linux creator Linus Torvalds and is supported by leading Linux and open source companies and developers from around the world. The Linux Foundation promotes, protects and standardizes Linux by providing unified resources and services needed for open source to successfully compete with closed platforms.

The LF's Korean members include the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), a non-profit Korean government-funded research organization, which joined the Linux Foundation as a gold member earlier this year.

ETRI will participate actively to enhance Linux kernel development in Korea. The Linux Foundation plans on promoting Linux development and use in Korea by launching a Developer and Collaboration Summit in Korea where key maintainers, developers and business people from the Linux ecosystem will engage with local Korean community representatives.

"Daniel Cho has been contributing to Korea's Linux and open source market in a variety of areas, including his work with some of the most popular Linux distributions in Asia while an executive at Asianux," said Jim Zemlin, executive director of The Linux Foundation. "Daniel also worked for Samsung SDS America and has vast experience in helping push Linux adoption in Korea to the next level. We're excited to have him join the Linux Foundation team."

"Linux has been functioning as a vital piece of software in a wide range of areas in the Korean IT industry, including multi-function servers, of course, plus other areas like television, mobile phones, set-top boxes and more," said Kwangjei "Daniel" Cho, The Linux Foundation director of Korea. "The Linux Foundation can play a key role in Korea in expanding Linux and open source software deeper into many different areas of the Korean industry."
