WhatsApp CEO及创始人 Jan Koum 宣布捐出一百万美元给 FreeBSD基金会。这是 FreeBSD 基金会成立十五年以来收到的 最大一笔捐款

Jan Koum 在他的 Facebook 页面上写道:

Last week, I donated one million dollars to the FreeBSD Foundation, which supports the open source operating system that has helped millions of programmers pursue their passions and bring their ideas to life.

I'm actually one of those people. I started using FreeBSD in the late 90s, when I didn't have much money and was living in government housing. In a way, FreeBSD helped lift me out of poverty - one of the main reasons I got a job at Yahoo! is because they were using FreeBSD, and it was my operating system of choice. Years later, when Brian and I set out to build WhatsApp, we used FreeBSD to keep our servers running. We still do.

I'm announcing this donation to shine a light on the good work being done by the FreeBSD Foundation, with the hope that others will also help move this project forward. We'll all benefit if FreeBSD can continue to give people the same opportunity it gave me - if it can lift more immigrant kids out of poverty, and help more startups build something successful, and even transformative.
