Linux Kernel Master leaves SUSE for the Linux Foundation..

Arstechnica posted that Greg Kroah-Hartman, maintainer of the Linux kernel's stable branch and the Linux driver project, is leaving SUSE to join the Linux Foundation.  We think it's awesome to see.  That the Linux foundation attracting such great talent is wonderful news.  Giving them the opportunity to create without even the appearance of being influenced by a single corporate interest.  Congratulations to both Mr. Kroah-Hartman and the Linux Foundation.
