I was really surprised when I talked with libv about Samsung that they'd participate also in SW/driver development. From what I knew Samsung was a horrible Windows company selling their (quite interesting laptops) with windows only and making hell's gates open if you would try with a refund.
Good to read that they're now showing commitment to Linux. And platinum sponsor is quite a number. There are few of them.
IBM, Fujitsu, NEC, intel, Oracle (lolwut???), Qualcomm and now Samsung.
AMD, China Mobile, Cisco, Huawei, ETRI, Google, hp, hitachi, Motorola, NetApp, Nokia, Sony, SuSE, NYSE Tech, Panasonic, Toyota
And quite a number of Ag members (among them VIA (lol) or Broadcom)
It makes me wonder that some enterprises prefer to be in a board like this, spending quite an amount of money but why they then don't develop free drivers or share specs...
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
