Linux Indy car guy falls short but takes victory lap anyway


The goal: Raise $350,000 to sponsor a car for the Indy 500. The guy behind the effort said all he needed was for 1% of Linux users to donate $1 each. In the end he raised $15,000. Which I guess proves the Linux community is either a) smaller than he thought; or b) cheaper; or c) both. Despite raising only 4% of his target goal the Tux500 guy is claiming victory because somehow he still managed to get a penguin sticker on a race car. See here. Meanwhile there are now some other Linux loons saying that the Tux500 organizers are running a scam. See what Penguin Pete has to say. Yes, that’s right. Penguin Pete.
