Linux Foundation's Jim Zemlin on the New Lock-in

Filed under
Linux

Last year, I interviewed the head of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin, about his own career, and about his organisation. That interview took place at the first European LinuxCon, which was held in Prague. This year, it took place in Barcelona, and I took the opportunity to catch up with Zemlin on what had happened in the intervening time (disclosure: the Linux Foundation paid for my travelling and accommodation while I was there.)

It seems it has been a good year for the Foundation, with a number of major companies joining up for the first time, or upgrading their membership. Zemlin says that income as a result has gone up by "double digit percentages".

The involvement of one company in particular has caused a few raised eyebrows.
