'..watching companies evolve from traditional, closed source development organizations into full-fledged open source contributors.'

'One of the great things about being The Linux Foundation is that we get to work with the foremost open source contributors in the world on a regular basis. What's just as exciting, though, is watching companies evolve from traditional, closed source development organizations into full-fledged open source contributors. This is happening every day, and the pace is astounding.'

'..a fully free system from the chipset up.'

'Coming to you live from Prague, Torvalds released Linux 3.1 while attending the the Linux Kernel Summit. This release has support for OpenRISC, support for Near-Field Communication (NFC), and a new project called cpupowerutils.

The OpenRISC processor, as the name suggests, is a GPL'ed RISC architecture. It's considered stable, and as the wiki says, has been implemented in some commercial ASCIs and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). You probably won't be seeing the OpenRISC chip in any systems at Best Buy, but it's a step forward for folks who want a fully free system from the chipset up.'
