Samsung takes a seat with Intel and IBM at the Linux Foundation

The Inquirer - THE LINUX FOUNDATION has announced that Samsung has become a platinum sponsor, joining other Linux heavyweights such as Intel and IBM.

Samsung was previously listed as a silver sponsor of the Linux Foundation, an organisation that promotes the use, development and deployment of Linux and consists of just about every technology company of note except Microsoft. Now Samsung has upgraded its membership to become a platinum partner, paying $500,000 per year for the privilege of having some say in how what is arguably the most important operating system kernel in use today evolves.
