Linux The BBC interviews Torvalds. I like this bit: "For me, Linux on the desktop is where I started, and Linux on the desktop is literally what I still use today primarily - although I obviously do have other Linux devices, including an Android phone - so I'd personally really love for it to take over in that market too. But I guess that in the meantime I can't really complain about the successes in other markets." Linux on the desktop is quite passe. Phones and servers is where it's at.

galvanash,

"Kickstarter != Venture Capital..."

Well, they clearly exist to serve the same funding role, but your right they go about it in different ways. Kickstarter is just one of many crowd funding models.

I wonder if any are available to WereCatf? Truth be told, since her project would require custom purpose hardware, the "All Or Nothing" model used by Kickstarter is probably not the best funding model. The wiki list includes other models such as "Keep It All" "Equity" and "Loan".

I would like to hear the experiences of anyone who's actually tried any of these!
