Just last month, the Free Standards Group and Open Source Development Labs announced that they had merged. That union brought together two of the most important resources supporting the Linux ecosystem, and promoting the growth of Linux operating system in the marketplace. Today, the product of that merger - called the Linux Foundation - announced the members of its first, diverse Board of Directors, fulfilling a promise to give a voice on the Board to all key stakeholders in the Linux ecosystem, including the kernel, legal, user, distro and vendor communities.

The Board members announced today range from kernel developers (like James Bottomley) to senior open source management at the largest technology companies (like Intel's Doug Fisher and IBM's Dan Frye), and from end users (like Bank of America) to distro project leaders, like Ubuntu Project founder Mark Shuttleworth. Together, it will be their job to support the Linux Foundation's new management team, led by Jim Zemlin, as they work to help Linux achieve its manifest destiny around the world.
