"In a move that shows strong support for open source
software in Japan and Asia, the Open Source Development Lab (OSDL)
has announced the establishment of a second facility outside Tokyo,
Japan. The new lab, in addition to a facility near Portland,
Oregon, will increase OSDL's ability to enable projects that expand
the enterprise and carrier-class functionality of Linux and
Supported by NEC, Hitachi, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi Electric, Miracle
Linux and another 14 global companies, the Open Source Development
Lab (OSDL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the
reliability and scalability of the Linux system. OSDL enables the
development of Linux-based business systems, communications
infrastructure and other mission-critical systems.
"Programmers and businesses in Asia have adopted Linux and open
source programming with record speed." said Koichi Ikumi, executive
general manager, Computer Software Operations Unit at NEC and OSDL
board member. "Establishing an OSDL facility in Japan was a natural
step and will increase the lab's ability to support projects of
local importance, enabling Japanese and Asian developers and acting
as a catalyst for the evolution of Linux worldwide."
