LXer: Spinmeisters taking over the Linux world

Published at LXer:

There was once a time when the now-defunct Open Source Development Labs, then the employer of Linus Torvalds, used to style itself as the centre of gravity of Linux. Not long after, the edifice toppled under its own weight - probably the force of gravity shifted. Or maybe the restructuring it had to undergo in 2005 and 2006 was the cause. No matter the reasons, the OSDL then merged with the Free Standards Group at the beginning of 2007 to form the Linux Foundation. Now, 18 months on, it appears that an organisation is no longer the centre of gravity for the Linux kernel - no, that role has apparently been taken on by the shiny, new head of the Foundation, Jim Zemlin.
