LinuxPPC to become non-profit

Author: JT Smith

Posted at LWN.net: "LinuxPPC Inc. has formally announced its
plans to become a non-profit organization (NPO). The NPO will focus on
the development and promotion of the Linux operating system on the PowerPC
processor. It will also be better able to support the growth and
development of the operating system.
Like many other free software projects, the LinuxPPC operating system was
largely built by volunteers. Non-profit organizations are designed to
organize such efforts, rather than have a for-profit corporation
controlling it."
