    We are very excited to join and support OIN, which is really reaching critical mass. This decision has clear value for a company like us, and we believe for all the other new OIN members. We highly encourage other companies to consider joining OIN as well so we create an even stronger protection mechanism for the benefit of the entire Linux ecosystem.
