The Linux Foundation has received the most revenue
amongst all of the free software and open source non-profits and
directly pays its leader the most, but the highest compensation of
any sort is still being received by Mozilla Foundation Chair
Mitchell Baker, along with her CTO Colleague Brendan Eich.
According to the latest publicly available financial
information, the Linux Foundation pulled in just over $9.6 million
for their 2010 fiscal year, and after $9.1 million in expenses,
generated $537,958 in positive cash flow for the year. In terms of
direct salary, Executive Director Jim Zemlin topped out the list
with $344,200. Factoring in other compensation, Zemlin brought home
$362,904 before taxes in 2010.
