On December 8th, 2022, the Linux Foundation released their annual report for 2022.
I’m not going to sugar coat this… it is absolutely ridiculous.
The highlight? Funding for the Linux kernel, in 2022, dropped to a measly 3.2% of the foundation’s total revenue of $243 Million dollars.
Down from the — already absurdly low — 3.4% from 2021.
Considering the name of the foundation… that is, needless to say, highly amusing. Or infuriating. Possibly concerning. Likely all three.
Let’s dive into the details and try to figure out why this is happening.
