In December, the nonprofit Open Source Development Labs cut a third of its staff and announced that CEO Stuart Cohen was leaving to pursue a new open-source software-related venture in collaboration with OVP Venture Partners. The organization, which is supported by members such as IBM and Intel,  will move forward with a 19-person staff and a focus on legal support for the Linux operating system and regional Linux-related activities. The group will continue to employ Linux founder Linus Torvalds.
