Linux Fund Credit Card!

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Well, I thought I'd start off my return to posting with something that I just thought was super cool: The Linux Fund Credit Card! Everybody seems to have some special credit card now-a-days aimed at getting you some nice rewards... but so far, nothing has truly been geek-oriented. Well, now there is a card for every true Linux lover: the all-new Linux Fund Visa Card! The card works as such:
Each time a cardholder uses their card, a donation is made to The Linux Fund by the card issuer, U.S. Bank. These donations add up to tens of thousands of dollars per year which The Linux Fund then gives out in grants. The Linux Fund has donated to new ideas and teams who maintain things like Debian.
Pretty cool eh? For those who don't know, here is some background on the Linux Fund project:
The Linux Fund began in 1999. Since then, the organization has handed out over one-half million dollars in grants to Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) projects like Blender, FreeGeek and the WikiMedia Foundation.
You can check out some more information on this awesome project at their website: linuxfund.org.

Note from the Nerd: I wish I were 18 or older... I'm going to get this card as soon as I can!
