You could say it had to happen, but actually, it didn't really have to, did it? The Linux Fund has launched a Linux affinity credit card, issued by MBNA and resplendent with cartoon penguin on the front. Each time you use the card, you'll be making a contribution (unspecified, as far as we can make out) to The Linux Fund, which is incorporated in Oregon and says it has applied for non-profit tax status. It's intended to fund open source projects, and will be soliciting contributions once it has non-profit status. At the moment though, its only source of funding is the credit card, so the outfit had better hope that an awful lot of Linux fans are willing to commit to penguin plastic. ®
