Mike,

Absolutely.  And expanding the point a little further, foundations are much more natural structures from which to deploy open source than  for-profit corporations (which depend on rigid property boundaries), government agencies (which have too many different conflicting constituencies), or educational institutions (which are intrisically driven by 'Who gets the credit?' rather than 'What needs doing?'")

Re: The key number missing from the story ...
Good point John but I think the advantages of putting this under the auspices of the Linux Foundation also include working with an organization that knows/supports open source, knows how set up project boards, governance, etc. The Linux Foundation does seem to be busy with a lot of various projects these days.

The key number missing from the story ...
... is just how much real support -- money and other resources -- the Linux Foundation intends to put into PNDA. The press release mostly talks about what Linux thinks is important or going to be important, which is pretty normal for a foundation, but there are no specific grant numbers yet. So we can't really tell if the Linux Foundation  is just shouting "hurray" from the sidelines, or will actually be pouring money in to keep open systems competitive with proprietary ones for network big data, or anywhere in between.  Sort of a "watch this space" public announcement until we have that number.

Linux getting PNDA is a plus fot them meaning more revenue annually and their available services they have to offer.
