The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced that LG Electronics is its newest member. LG will participate in the Linux Foundation's events and community development efforts.
LG is a global leader in serving the mobile devices, home electronics and home appliances markets. Because of LG's established leadership, it can significantly contribute to the rapid shift towards a computing world in which all devices are connected, all the time, and from anywhere. Linux is naturally positioned to usher in the connected world of computing and LG's participation in the Linux Foundation will help advance the operating system.
"LG Electronics is joining a growing number of companies who see the unique value that Linux brings to the future of computing, where there are many different devices that are always connected," said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer programs at the Linux Foundation. "With its long history of innovation, LG's contributions to the Linux Foundation will help accelerate the introduction of new, Linux-based devices."
