Advocating for Linux on the Front Lines and in the Kernel

Mar 04, 2013, 19:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Founded just about a month ago by lifelong Linux advocate Dietrich Schmitz (with some help, it should be said, from Linux Girl), Linux Advocates is a young startup here in the Linux blogosphere that's designed to operate as a nonprofit. Original reporting and quality writing from community insiders are part of what it promises, as is a dedication to interpreting the news from a Linux perspective.

"Whereas most Linux sites seem to either regurgitate Linux stories from elsewhere or walk a fine line in terms of corporate advertisers and 'partnerships,' Linux Advocates will, by virtue of being a nonprofit and maintaining an independent status, be unencumbered to provide candid, unbiased, accurate and meaningful information from a Linux perspective," the site explains.

To keep itself going -- not to mention Schmitz himself, who has been left unemployed for over a year by the current economic mess -- Linux Advocates is now in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign.
