Linux is the largest undertaking of shared innovation in our planet’s history. The OSS community has written and shared billions of lines of code that have transformed the way businesses operate and consumers live. We congratulate OIN for its 15 years, during which it has provided a protective shield against patent aggression. We encourage all open source contributors and users to join OIN and demonstrate their commitment to a safe environment for continued growth in Linux and other OSS projects.
