Ok, so maybe cars aren’t the core business of most IT VARs. But still, when the Linux car at the Indy 500 is the first to crash, that can’t be a great sign, right? Driver Roberto Moreno hit the outside wall on turn 1 of lap 38 and eventually came in last in the race.
Roberto’s car #77 featured Linux’s mascot, Tux the penguin — the culmination of the Tux 500 project, which raised $18,308.90 to put the logo front-and-center on the car.
Oh, well. Good drivers were never Linux’s strong point.
