Fairfax IT: Linux to Get Creative Partner

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

“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.”
