A few days ago, the executive director of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin, presented the nth annual report of this non-profit organization and that serves as a reference for the Linux universe. Founded in 2000, it has the support of more than 1,000 members from around the world including names like Google, Intel, Microsoft, Facebook, Oracle, Samsung or Tencent.
As usually happens at the end of the year, many of us take a look back and try to remember the milestones and most relevant moments. On this occasion in 2020, a year irretrievably marked by COVID. Hence, for example, the report highlights the work of its division Linux Foundation Public Health (LFPH), which has provided open source tools to countries and organizations around the world to fight the pandemic.
