Linux Foundation tackles power concerns
Linux developers are gearing up for a summit next week in Canada to discuss the issue of power management in the open-source framework.
The Green Linux initiative is being organized by the Linux Foundation, which was formed earlier this year by a merger of the Open Source Development Labs and the Free Standards Group.
Last week the Foundation held a “collaboration summit” at Google’s Mountain View Campus, with the Green Linux initiative being one result of that meeting.
“Making Linux ‘green’ is becoming ever more important in all aspects of Linux adoption: mobile, desktop and server,” read a statement from the organization, released on Tuesday. “The Linux Foundation will work with its work groups, identify key projects and coordinate resources among its members to improve this functionality in the Linux platform. Power management developers will meet next week in Ottawa to continue work in this area.”
