The Linux Foundation is the organization responsible for promoting the growth of Linux, and at a recent event in Barcelona, LinuxCon Europe, today announced that HP just level up within the organizational chart and now becomes a Platinum member.
This means that within the foundation, HP now looks as equals to other companies such as Samsung, Intel and Qualcomm. It also means that HP is assured a seat on the board of directors and to be directly involved in all the activities of the foundation.
And as expected, since both sides have only words of good parenting.
