The Kodi Foundation was proud to announce today that it finally decided to join The Linux Foundation in their attempt to enrich the Open Source software ecosystem.

 

As of today, The Kodi Foundation, the makers of the free, open-source, and cross-platform media center software known as Kodi (formerly XBMC), is now an Associate Member of The Linux Foundation in attempt to contribute their code to the Open Source software community and help similar projects evolve.

"It seemed natural for us to join, given the fact that we are strong believers in the benefits of open-source software. We strongly believe that open-source is the best way to achieve awesome things. That was and still is what moves Kodi forward," stated The Kodi Foundation in a press release.True innovation can be achieved when people cooperate and shareBy joining The Linux Foundation, The Kodi Foundation strongly believes that their work and the work of other Open Source projects would lead to real innovation, which wouldn't be possible if the code base was closed source or if it was stifled by the visions of corporates and allocated resources.

"This is a story that happens every day. An individual shares some code thinking "meh, no one is interested in this". Two days later someone across the globe sends a patch to fix a bug or suggest an improvement. Now there are two individuals working on a common problem," says The Kodi Foundation. "When people cooperate and share, the project at hand and the community will always benefit."

As a non-profit consortium, The Linux Foundation dedicates its resources to help the Linux and Open Source ecosystems grow and evolve by providing them with financial and intellectual support, IT infrastructure and services, as well as training and certification. The Kodi Foundation is a non-profit technology consortium developing the Kodi open-source media player application.
