Intel to Turn Moblin Over to Linux Foundation
,----[ Quote ]
| Intel on Thursday plans to turn over the reins of its Moblin Linux-based
| platform project to the Linux Foundation, putting the work in neutral
| territory in the hopes of attracting more community support for it.
| The San Francisco-based Linux Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy group, will
| host the online community for Moblin on its Web site and take over
| stewardship of the project and its community, Jim Zemlin, executive director
| of the Linux Foundation said Wednesday.
Linux Foundation has bought Linux.com
,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation has long wanted the Linux.com domain name for obvious
| reasons. For a long time SourceForge, formerly VA Linux Systems, kept the
| site, but the company has now sold Linux.com to the Foundation.
| Sources close to the deal say that the deal was made because, -- an all too
| familiar story these days -- the company needed the money. SourceForge, had,
| in addition to its well-known open-source eponymous code Web site, been in
| the media business. In December 2008, however, the company laid off the bulk
| of its NewsForge editorial staff. NewsForge was hosted at Linux.com. The
| Linux.com site then became something of a placeholder site, which held only a
| discussion forum.
