Fairfax IT: Linux to Get Creative Partner

Jan 15, 1999, 00:03 (1 Talkback[s])

The famous Fairfax group of newspapers reports on the earlier Creative Labs job posting to linux-kernel.

Thanks to Matthew Wright for this link.

"THE world's biggest maker of multimedia hardware has telegraphed its intentions to officially support the open source operating system, Linux."

"In a posting to the Linux Kernel Mailing List, an e-mail discussion forum, Creative Labs called for job applications from developers interested in heading up an open source team within the company. It is possibly the first time a peripheral vendor has embarked on such a widespread native adoption of open source development."
