It’s always nice to see companies show their support for Linux and join The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux. Earlier this month we were announcing that Toyota, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer by sales and production, joined The Linux Foundation in order to maximize its investment in Linux while at the same time foster open innovation throughout the automotive ecosystem.

Today we are glad to report that The Linux Foundation has four new members, members that represent Linux’s ubiquity and adaptability across industries. The new members in question are: basysKom, Codero, Gluster and Nixu Open.
