Submission + - Top Linux Foundations Merge

An anonymous reader writes: The Open Source Development Labs (employer of Linux creator Linus Torvalds and Linux kernel maintainer Andrew Morton) and the Free Standards Group (home of the Linux Standard Base) have merged to form the Linux Foundation. The OSDL had recently reorganized and cut costs, so the move probably adds further efficiencies to both organizations, but also creates a more powerful organization expanding and promoting Linux internationally. Already, both OSDL.org and FreeStandards.org redirect to Linux-Foundation.org.
