Facebook joins Linux Foundation as a platinum member

Facebook has now joined Linux Foundation as a platinum member as most web-based companies rely on Linux and open source software.

These projects include the JavaScript (React) library, the (Open Computing) project (to open hardware resources for data centers) and the Linux cGroup2 container software.

  • (Facebook Connectivity) and the Open Source Communication Infrastructure Project (TIP), which provides fast and reliable internet services to disadvantaged people, and related open source projects (Magma) enable telecom operators to deploy cellular networks in regions of the world, which reduces the cost of reduces building And maintenance of communication networks.

(Cathy Cam) about the Linux Foundation, he said: It supports the continued stability, resiliency, and scalability of the Linux system in nearly all aspects of modern computing and forms the backbone of some of Facebook's infrastructure, which is why we are why. We are glad to try our best to take care of the Linux Foundation.
