Intel sets up open source group

Antony Savvas

Intel has created an internal group to drive its open source marketing development.

Focusing on Linux and other open source software, the Open Source Program Office will be headed by Intel’s Jon Bork. Intel already has an internal group that deals with Microsoft issues, including operational matters with the company. The open source group will be responsible for dealing with Linux dealers and those selling other open source products.

Earlier this year Intel hired the head of Sun Microsystem’s open source community programme. Intel is also now keen to supply Centrino wireless chipsets to laptop manufacturers using the Linux operating system.
