The maker of expensive printer ink, HP, has signed up to the Linux Foundation's top table. By writing a cheque for $500,000, Hewlett Packard has just become a platinum member of the body and will sit next to Intel, Qualcomm and Samsung.

Because of this history and innate knowledge of software development, HP understands that Linux and collaborative development can benefit its business across its product portfolio. We're looking forward to the work we can accomplish with HP, he said.
