Linux helps raise money for one million soccer balls


I like Linux, and I like soccer (football). So today’s news was almost too good to be true.

Canada-based Omni Technology Solutions, Novell South Africa, Userful, and Pinnacle Micro have teamed up to provide Linux desktop computers for the “Let’s Play a Million” South African telethon on June 27.

The national telethon is a joint initiative of UNICEF, Supersport, the department of education and five radio stations. The objective is to donate a million soccer balls to South African youth and promote child survival through sports and healthy living.

Each of the telethons will be using, fittingly, a grouping of Linux workstations. Here’s hoping they come through! Gooooaaaalllll!
