More advancements in security from the folks who know it!
As much as some folks dissuade the idea of bug-hunting or community-led approaches to security, I personally think this is a great move for helping to promote Linux as a stronger contender when it comes to security.  The open-sourced nature of Linux and its applications and environments, while beneficial for many developer environments especially, need some security love and I am thrilled to see more formal backing to help not just create more awareness but put a program in place to help drive more education and solutions to close those security gaps.

Linux Foundation Does Great Things
Any endeavor that advances open source/Linux is worth the time, effort and money involved.  Open Source is the future and any industry that ignores it is bound to see reduced profits.
