“The collective participation of companies from a variety of industries and regions enables the Linux and open source communities to extend the reach of Linux software development in many vertical markets,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services at The Linux Foundation. “We welcome diversity and look forward to working with our new members as well as the many other contributors to Linux that are working on developing the next generation of software for cars and games.”
