SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2009 – The Linux Foundation (LF), the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux, today announced it will host the industry’s most advanced and open Linux-based mobile project, Moblin.
Created in 2007, the Moblin project will be supported by the Linux Foundation. With technical support from the industry’s highly respected kernel developers and a neutral, third party host, the Moblin project is primed to be the most advanced and open mobile Linux platform.
Partners come out in strong support of the Moblin project.
“As a member of the Linux Foundation, we welcome the Moblin project as it offers a comprehensive framework for developers to drive innovation in the mobile device market,” says Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Ubuntu project. “Moving to the Linux Foundation will promote further innovation and reinforces the synergies between Moblin and the Ubuntu community.”
