The following video shows Samsung embarking on a journey. The journey is Open Source which was started 18 months ago with a single member, Linux and FOSS advocate Ibrahim Haddad. Fast forward to today and there are over 40 people at the new Open Source Innovation Group, which includes 20 developers, devoted full-time to working on upstream projects and helping the inroads of Open Source into Samsung.

Samsung is a company which is new to Open Source. Yes, they support Open Source, get involved in Open Source, but to a large degree Open Source still remains a mystery, which isn’t understood by many within the company, and this is where the Open Source Innovation Group has it’s work cut out for them. We wish you good luck. Below is a video talking about the journey so far.
