George Grey, CEO of the Linaro organization, gave a keynote speech on benefits of collaboration in Linux development at last month’s Embedded Linux Conference in San Francisco.
In his keynote, Grey expounded on the benefits of multiple companies collaborating to accelerate Linux development. Additionally, he explained the purpose and goals of Linaro and reported on the group’s recent accomplishments and current priorities. Watch the video below.

Linaro is a member-funded open source organization chartered to advance core software and enabling technologies for ARM-based Linux devices. Rather than creating a Linux distribution, the group aims to provide “great software and tools for distributions to pull from, including OEMs who want to develop an in-house Linux.” Accordingly, Linaro puts its efforts into “areas that interact directly with the silicon such as multimedia, graphics, power management, kernel and boot,” thereby enhancing upstream projects and providing “useful components to downstream distributions that wish to leverage the work done by Linaro.”
