honda linux tux

The Linux Penguin Logo “Tux” has been stuck to the nose of the Panoz/Honda in anticipation of meeting a donation goal. The Tux 500 is an effort to raise $350,000USD in exchange for a Primary Sponsorship + Team Linux name for the upcoming May 27th, 2007 Indy 500 race. As long as their efforts secure $25,000USD, the logos will stay on the car.



If less than 1% of the Linux community donates $1, this will happen!!

So ‘buck’ up and lets get that Penguin roaring!!

What your donations will buy:
$25K-$50K USD: Minor Associate Sponsor: logo appears on the car
$50K-$100K USD: Associate Sponsor: larger logo appears on the car
$125K-$300K USD: Major Associate Sponsor: large logo on car’s engine cover
$350K-$600K USD: Primary Sponsor: logo on sidepod, team name contains “Team Linux”

Prizes for Top Contributors:
The top contributor will be a member of the Pit Crew on Race Day
Two random contributors will get a ride in a two-seater Indy Car
The second highest contributor will get a Linux server or notebook
The third highest contributor will get a video iPod

    Yes Team CarZi would be super sweet. I’m actually surprised that Google doesn’t have a car yet in either Indy 500 or Formula 1. Give it some time, you should see one by the end of this decade.
