Linux car in Indy 500?

If it doesn't relate to Debian, but you still want to share it, please do it here

Do you think it would be cool for there to be a Tux 500 car?

It is so much easier to criticize somebody else's effort... than it is to get out there and do anything of comparable worth.

I m not sure it is criticism. I do not CARE that they are doing this. I am not criticising what THEY want to do. But for me - I would not choose this. I am glad they are choosing to do something that feels good to them. :D But do not think that everyone has to agree or that means they are critiscising it.

When I start a movement to give linux t-shirts to the homeless then feel free to say that spending it on a racing car would further linux more. I may even agree with you on that point but raise the point that it has other benefits as well.

I think it should be FREE SOFTWARE instead of just LINUX on the car anyway. Put too much power in one package and you are setting up...well a single point of failure.

I wasn't criticizing the effort, by all means good luck in having a Linux sponsored car in the Indy 500.

My personal priorities, however, are a bit different. Clothing for the homeless and computers for the poor are more my style. :)
