Today Linux suffered a crushing defeat as the Linux car crashed and placed last in the Indy 500.
The concept was very cool. I love these community efforts where geeks pull together to do something fun outside of writing code. In this case, the Tux 500 campaign raised just over $18,000 from people in the Linux community to sponsor a car and get Linux with the Tux logo placed on an Indy Car.
Props to commenters on the Engadget post for the driver error comment.
