Linux Tux car

Linux adoption in the enterprise has been amazingly fast over the past 10 years, and will remain that way for the foreseeable future, but it’s not this fast.

The Linux mascot, Tux, has been affixed to the front of a Formula One racecar and will stay there if the Linux community at large can raise what seems like an obscenely large amount of money for a decal: $350,000. Well, it’s a bit more than just a decal, as they’re trying to sponsor an entire car. If they can’t raise the money, I don’t really know what happens. I assume they’ll cast Tux in the sequel to Happy Feet.
