“AlmaLinux is powered by its community, and this award is for them first,” said benny Vasquez, chair of the AlmaLinux OS Foundation. “This recognition underscores our commitment to serving our community with conviction, providing stability for our entire ecosystem, and bringing organizations a forever-free enterprise Linux distribution. “

The foundation’s ability to attract global mirrors, prestigious partnerships, and sponsorships, along with its growing influence and credibility in the open-source community were the most important factors in the judge's decisions.

“While growth in much of the world economy has recovered slowly from the COVID-19 pandemic, the American economy continues to show remarkable resilience and growth,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. “Our 2024 Stevie winners have contributed to that successful recovery through their innovation, persistence, and hard work. We congratulate all our winners in the 2024 ABAs and look forward to celebrating their achievements during our June 11 awards banquet in New York.”
