Linux Foundation was founded by Linus Torvalds. He is the creator and developer of Linus Kernel, the kernel for the most popular operating systems like Android, Chrome OS and Linux operating systems. The Linux Kernel comprises codes that were created by the contributors around the world. Linus hardly writes code for Linus Kernel. He assigns Kernel maintainers to oversee if the releases reach the users seamlessly.
Linux is known as the most significant open-source software project in history. This open-source software has been widely accepted around the world in almost all sectors, from financial to film production.
The Linux Foundation tries to accelerate the technology development and innovation by hosting events for the Linux community, end-users and developers. These technical experts sit down, solve issues that Linux faces, and might face in the future. The foundation makes sure to host the most prominent open-source projects in the world by including thousands of active developers around the world to bring innovation and speed into Linux and other open-source software.
The entire lines of source code present in the collaborative projects of Linux foundation are 115,013,302 as of September 2015. To recreate this codebase, it would take almost 1356 developers to write code for 30 years. This is the impact Linux Foundation has created in the community of operating systems.
