Here’s Bob Moore, the founder of the Tux500 effort, explaining his harebrained idea for putting a Linux sponsored car in the Indy 500, which, um, I guess he figures will make more people want to use Linux. Money quote comes near the end: “Who are we? We are Linux. You and I. We are Linux. And we’re going to put a car in the Indianapolis 500. It’s time people know who we are. What better place is there to tell them?”
Well, I can think of a few better places. Like, a computer store? Or a newspaper advertisement? Web sites? No, sorry. You’re right. Indy car makes sense. Huge crossover audience between the two camps.
