Linux is a product of mass collaboration unmatched in the history of computing.

Members of the Linux Foundation support the neutral development, promotion and advancement of the platform with their membership fees and can proudly say they support these activities:
Besides ensuring your company’s investment in Linux is protected from a legal, technical and promotional perspective, there are concrete benefits for joining the Linux Foundation:
