Linux Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides financial and supervisory support to the open source software community. Linux Fund raises funds with its line of rewards credit cards and direct donations, and has given over half a million dollars to open source projects since its founding in 1999. Candidate projects are identified, reviewed and advised by the board of directors with special attention to under-served areas of the market and broad potential impact or usage.

A donation is made every time you use one of these cards.

Welcome to the Linux Kernel Archives. This is the primary site for the Linux kernel source, but it has much more than just Linux kernels.
What is Linux?
Linux is a clone of the operating system Unix, written from scratch by Linus Torvalds with assistance from a loosely-knit team of hackers across the Net. It aims towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliance.
It has all the features you would expect in a modern fully-fledged Unix, including true multitasking, virtual memory, shared libraries, demand loading, shared copy-on-write executables, proper memory management, and multistack networking including IPv4 and IPv6.
Although originally developed first for 32-bit x86-based PCs (386 or higher), today Linux also runs on (at least) the Compaq Alpha AXP, Sun SPARC and UltraSPARC, Motorola 68000, PowerPC, ARM, Hitachi SuperH, IBM S/390, MIPS, HP PA-RISC, Intel IA-64, DEC VAX, AMD x86-64, AXIS CRIS, Renesas M32R, and Atmel AVR32 architectures; for many of these architectures in both 32- and 64-bit variants.

The GNU Operating system - Free Software Foundation
The GNU Project was launched in 1984 to develop a complete Unix-like operating system which is free software: the GNU system. Variants of the GNU operating system, which use the kernel called Linux, are now widely used; though these systems are often referred to as "Linux", they are more accurately called GNU/Linux systems.
GNU is a recursive acronym for "GNU's Not Unix"; it is pronounced guh-noo, approximately like canoe.

"At some point (I'm not sure when), Linus Torvalds (the father of Linux) casually mentioned that he was rather fond of Penguins - which rather stopped the debate in its tracks."
Tux made it into Time Magazine in August 2002 in an article by Chris Taylor entitled "The Little Penguin That Could".

Umm.. You don't have any gap to fill in.
"Linus likes penguins". That's it. There was even a headline on it in
some Linux Journal some time ago (I was bitten by a Killer Penguin in
Australia - I'm not kidding). Penguins are fun.
As to why use a penguin as a logo? No good reason, really. But a logo
doesn't really ave to _mean_ anything - it's the association that counts.
And I can think of many worse things than have linux being associated

Tux.Org is an umbrella organization supporting the efforts of Users Groups and Developers. Our primary focus is supporting and advocating the development and use of software and systems whose source code and specifications were openly developed and are freely available to the public. Some refer to this idea as 'Open Source' or 'Free Software.'
Tux.Org, Inc. is once again a participant in FOSE! - March 10-12, 2009 Washington, DC
FOSE is the premier meeting and solutions marketplace for government technology today. Where other events fall short on content and expertise, FOSE continues to evolve to meet the needs of an ever-changing government technology marketplace.

What is Webmin?
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms (and Java for the File Manager module), you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and so on.
Webmin consists of a simple web server, and a number of CGI programs which directly update system files like /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/passwd. The web server and all CGI programs are written in Perl version 5, and use no non-standard Perl modules.
Who developed Webmin?
Almost all the development of Webmin was done by Jamie Cameron, though many people have contributed patches and translations into additional languages. There are also many third-party modules that were developed by other people separately.
