Article: RIP: Community Linux (1991-2007)

Linux-Watch reports: "The idea that Linux is primarily a community-based project based on the work of thousands of independent, idealist hackers died a quiet death at home on March 27. ... The proximate cause of death was the Linux Foundation's naming of its new board of directors. This leading non-profit Linux organization's board included many Fortune 500 executives from around the world -- but not one representative from a purely community-based Linux organization."

Very interesting article...
