LXer: Tux enters the Indy 500

Published at LXer:

You might think if someone were to mention Linux at the Indianapolis 500, they would be talking about Linux in an embedded system or powering a server tracking information about the race. You'd be wrong. Instead, there's a group seeking to fund an Indy racer in the name of Linux. The group was started by Ken Starks, also known as Helios, the founder of Linux marketing site and author of the well-known Linux opinion site Blog of Helios. With the Tux 500 program, Starks, Bob Moore, and Ted Woerner aim to see to it that when the flag drops on the 2007 Indianapolis 500, a race car emblazoned with Linux decals will be roaring down the track. [I think that is already having its its intended effect and as the race gets watch! - Scott]
