30 years of Linux: B1 Systems donates 30,000 euros and wants to know to whom



Linux celebrates its 30th anniversary on September 17 and the systems house B1 Systems, specializing in open source, wishes to share its joy with open source and social projects: The team around the penguin mascot makes a total donation of 30,000 euros.

Half of the total goes to social projects. No beneficiary has yet been determined for the remaining 15,000 euros. Open source fans can now choose which open source projects or nonprofits that promote open source will receive the money.

You can submit suggestions from a website until October 4th. Team B1 checks them and puts them on a voting list. The list will be available from October 5. And then it’s time to vote. Because: Each of the projects and each club on the list receives a sum proportional to the votes received, the team only paying sums of 100 euros or more. Two weeks later – October 20 – B1 ends the vote and publishes the winners.

One of the reasons B1 Systems gives so much money is not given. This is probably related to the fact that the systems house specializes in consulting, training and support for Linux and Open Source.
