It's one thing to create a great piece of software. It’s quite another to have it make a mark on the entire industry. These are the companies and organizations whose work has had a significant impact on what others build, how they build it, and ultimately, who uses it: Apple, Facebook, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, GitHub, Netflix, Red Hat, Slack, and The Linux Foundation.

We’ve been one of the bedrock members of The Linux Foundation since its inception. We have a long history of doing open source projects throughout many communities. (But) there are things we couldn’t do before that we can now do, working in partnership with The Linux Foundation. If we were to take a project, open source it ourselves, and expect people to come to that project, that’s a very difficult path. But when you do it in partnership with The Linux Foundation, that path gets smoothed.
