"Having a company with the experience and scale of Apple as an end user member is a huge testament to the vitality of cloud native computing for the future of infrastructure and application development," said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. "We're thrilled to have the support of Apple, and look forward to the future contributions to the broader cloud native project community."

"Please note that you must also be a Member of the LF to be eligible to participate as a member of CNCF"

So does this mean Apple is now a member of the Linux Foundation?!

This is great! Now, can we please get more than 5GB of storage for free? I know Apple’s pricing for iCloud storage is not too bad but I feel we should at least get 15GB of free storage per iCloud account.

I don’t want to hi-jack this thread with what I happen to think is a tangential topic. But why do you “feel” Apple should do this? Generally speaking, why is “free” storage a model that works in the longer term for the (average/general) user? To be clear, I am not really arguing the amount. It could be 1GB or 5GB or 100GB—I imagine there is a cost Apple has to cover for the service in some way or another. Either by indirect charge to a typical user (eg, extra $100 on every new phone to cover such storage over several years) or the sale of meta data or advertisements. I’m one of those that happens to think the better way is just to charge for it, every month or some such. I feel that way about steaming music and magazines, too. I don’t happen to feel that way about (at least some) application purchases. Those I prefer to be one-time buys.

But I would not want ads embedded in any of these things, nor do I want my preferences and personal data sold. Nor do I want an initial inflated cost (as I might never sign up for News+). But I grok that “free” generally isn’t.
