Geek Gift Giving Guide
In the spirit of sharing, we offer a few suggestions for the perfect gift to give someone who loves Linux and open source.
Print it, circle your favorites, and carefully place where your friends can find it. Or, leave nothing to chance and go shopping for yourself. Especially if you were more naughty than nice this year.
- Nintendo DS
- Handheld game system that allows up to 16 players and happens to rock. Has WIFI support, allows chat between game units, and built-in microphone for trash talk.
- Neuros MP3/Ogg player
- Comes with the source code and plays Oggs. And now that you've got your new MP3/Ogg player, you need something to put on it. Try:
- Guilt-free Internet music. "We're a record label. But we're not evil."
- Swiss Memory 64MB
- Swiss Army knife and 64MB USB flash drive. Who wouldn't want one?
- Belkin Bluetooth Wireless USB Printer Adapter
- Because cables suck.
- Garmin eTrex Vista C handheld GPS
- TFT color screen. Automatic route generation. If you still get lost, perhaps you're better off staying indoors.
- The Red Swingline Stapler
- One of our favorites from Thinkgeek... The coveted stapler is worth protecting. If you've seen "Office Space," you know why.
- Railroad Tycoon II
- A classic. And great for that old Linux box you've got lying around.
- Brownies Made by Angels
- You gotta eat, right? Try a pound and a half of pure chocolate pleasure, dusted with powdered sugar... Insanely good, insanely expensive, insanely worth it.
- Red Hat Summit registration
- The perfect gift. You get to experience the latest in Linux and open source, in-depth technical sessions... And it's in New Orleans. Where the food is spicy, the jazz is old-school, and the good times just roll.
