For immediate release.
The CE Linux Forum is pleased to announce a collaboration with the LWN.net online periodical to become their first official sponsor. The CE Linux forum is a trade organization that works to enhance Linux for use in consumer electronics and other embedded products. LWN.net is an online news-gathering and reporting site which serves the Linux community. LWN.net has historically been primarily funded through subscriptions. Corporate subscriptions have also been available for companies and large organizations, which allows multiple accounts from a single organization to view premium content on the site. CELF recently worked with LWN.net to create their new sponsorship program, and become the first sponsor of the site.
Nobuhiro Asai, Chairman of the CELF Board of Directors, said: "The work that LWN.net does, in particular to document key aspects of the Linux kernel, are a valuable asset to the entire Linux community. This work directly benefits embedded Linux developers, who utilize the content at LWN.net to keep up with the rapid progress of Linux development. Thus, it makes sense for CELF to directly sponsor LWN.net's ongoing activities."
Jonathan Corbet, executive editor of LWN.net, said "We are pleased to announce this new method of supporting LWN.net, and happy to have CELF become the first such sponsor. We look forward to continuing to serve the Linux community, with CELF's support."
