The Incredible Story of Scott Kveton: Linux, Firefox, Bacon & iPhones

,----[ Quote ]
| When Kveton was 31 years old he founded the 
| Open Source Lab at Oregon State University in 
| Corvallis. After working at various big tech 
| companies for a few years, he had joined the 
| University and cut its hardware budget by 75% 
| the previous year - just by buying open source 
| Linux servers. The school decided to put the 
| budget surplus back into the paradigm that 
| made the difference. Then Google, IBM and 
| other big companies started giving the new Lab 
| money to host open source projects they were 
| working on. Soon Kveton had a staff of 25 
| students and contacts all over the Open Source 
| world. That was 6 years ago and those contacts 
| have been invaluable throughout the rest of 
| his career.
| [...]
| After continued success hosting other open 
| source projects (like Drupal) at the Lab, 
| Kveton decided he wanted to try something 
| entrepreneurial.


Some company called Google started with Linux hacking.

| kernel, it will run the windows and web
| applications from Google Chrome OS. Since
| Google Chrome an OS kernel using Linux, your
| video should be released to the public, so
| everyone who wants can have access to it.
| Also, Google Chrome OS must also be free,
| something that surely will encourage many
| people to use Google's operating system.
