Earlier today the Linux Foundation announced that Vancouver's Intrinsyc is their newest member.
Intrinsyc is joining The Linux Foundation to collaborate with the community on embedded Linux development, specifically around Android and MeeGo, for devices ranging from smartphones to industrial handhelds, portable gaming devices, e-readers, media tablets, and automobile infotainment.
While news like this from the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux isn't necessarily breaking news, the fact that they're bringing LinuxCon to Vancouver this summer is big news.
