A group of major companies, IBM, HP, Oracle, Apple, Intel led by Resolvo got together to form a Singapore Open Source Alliance. See ZDNet article:
Spearheaded by Resolvo Systems, a Singapore-based Linux solutions provider, the Singapore Open Source Alliance (Sosa) will also converse with chief information officers in government bodies as well as small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), to accelerate the growth of open-source software in the island-state.
Other than IBM and HP, the alliance also consists of Red Hat, Novell, Sun Microsystems, Oracle, Apple and Intel, according to Yap Boon Leong, business development director of Resolvo Systems. “Sosa is possibly the only open-source consortium in the world involving several key industry heavyweights,” he told ZDNet Asia.
