The Linux Foundation serves one simple purpose.

I happen to agree with all the points and most of the comments. The simple truth is the Linux foundation exists because should any of the members individually hire Linus Torvalds the competitive dynamic would shift the entire industry. Jim Zemlin is a smart enough guy who's been handed a golden opportunity. Keep this teeter totter balanced and he and his friends collect a fat check and travel expenses for life. It's that simple.

Is the Linux Foundation an elite group of well funded individuals looking after their own interests? Of course it is. Don't be naive! :)
