More and more management positions in the Linux Foundation (employer of Linus Torvalds) are being acquired by people who receive huge salaries (millions of dollars) from Microsoft.
We're sorry to inform you that another Microsoft executive has managed to enter the top management of the Linux Foundation. The senior executive has been added to an already split board, and so we have Microsoft veterans speaking on behalf of the Foundation.
We are not joking and we are not exaggerating, since the OpenJS Foundation is already there it looks be controlled by Microsoft. The news was first released by techrights.org.
The OpenJS press release states that Robin Ginn has taken over as Executive Director at the Foundation. The same person managed to enter management team of the Linux Foundation. We do not know exactly what month this happened, as there does not seem to be any real transparency about these moves and clearly no official announcement.
Ms. Robin Ginn has been quietly added at some point in recent weeks or months…
The Linux Foundation becomes a classic case of "friend brings friend" since we know his friend. Congratulations to Microsoft. Do you want the Linux Foundation? You can have it, just don't forget to change its name.
What does Linus Torvalds really say about all this? The Linux Foundation is full of friends who I do not think are hers and ours….
