LXer: Linux Foundation Sells Out, Brave New Browser & More...

Published at LXer:

The Linux Foundation’s board has always been weighted heavily in favor of corporations and money, with a large majority of the foundation’s board being elected by member corporations. The nine platinum members, who pay $500,000 yearly in membership dues, elect up to ten board members (or one each for up to ten directors), the sixteen gold members elect three, and the more than 250 silver members elect only one. Until last week, individual members, who pay $99 in annual dues elected two members to the board, not enough to influence foundation policy in a vote, but enough to give the community some say in the decision making process.
