I apologize in advance b/c I know it's not usually good list etiquette to advertise on a list, but I know that we all love linux (I would hope so) and one of the greatest challenges to getting linux "out there" is that most people don't know about it. Marketing for OpenSource isn't easy. To get on with the point, there's a group of linux users / advocates out of Indiana that are trying to have linux as a sponsor for a car in the Indianapolis 500 this year. Depending on the amount of money that is raised, it could be the minor associate, associate, major associate or primary sponsor of a car. These then decide how often and how large the linux logo (tux) appears on the car. If this sounds like a worthwhile contribution to you, you can read more and donate here: http://tux500.com.

This was posted before and I read someplace that this is a scam.

One link.

And another

If you really want to promote linux, start by promoting OSS for Windows and to have some real fun, promote Beryl 3D over Vista Aero.

WTF!!! I just spend $10 donating

And Another $100 on T shirts http://www.spreadshirt.com/ hoax maybe?

http://www.indy500.com/news/story.php?story_id=8602 <-- Dont know if this is an reliable Indy 500 source

It's A good publicity stunt if it's true.
Better yet put on MClaren in F1 ( Real racing, not just right turn, left if counterclockwise )
Now that would be something,

Well easy come easy go..

+ I've spent more on one evening at the pub ;)
