Michael Robertson Says Lindows.com Supports Mozilla Financially

Wednesday August 6th, 2003

Mart Rootamm points us towards an interview with Lindows.com CEO Michael Robertson, in which the outspoken entrepreneur states that his company is a financial supporter of the Mozilla project. Robertson says: "When it comes to supporting the open-source community, we're good about putting our code back into the open-source initiative. We're also financial supporters of many of the popular initiatives — Debian, KDE, Mozilla, Wine. We contribute real dollars to them. I would contend that the Linux community needs companies that are profitable, so they can keep funneling money into these organizations and encourage them to keep improving their product."

They have apparently given money to mozdev.org.. it is unclear whether they have given any money to Mozilla proper. Of course, the foundation is an infant.. let them have time. I support Lindows.. most of the complaints about Linux including difficulty installing hardware (it supports plug and play) and software installation (for $50.00/year and/or with for-pay products a la carte)
