LinuxPR: Magic Software Enterprise’s Magic For Linux Really Cool Contest Winner

“Magic Software Enterprises welcomed home last month Mike
McMillin, winner of its Magic for Linux Really Cool Contest.
McMillin, who is president and general manager of Comput-Ability,
Incorporated, won the 18-day all expense’s paid cruise for two to
the Great White continent and surrounding islands for his
business-to-business e-commerce site, BuyInsulation.com, built using
Magic’s development environment for the Linux platform.

“Accompanied by his son, Robert, the heavily “insulated”
McMillin and company braved temperatures as low as 20 degrees on a
tour that took them to several ports on the continent. There, they
climbed glaciers, visited international research stations, and
communed with 3000-pound elephant seals and seven different species
of penguins. On South Georgia Island, the two walked among more
than 160,000 King Penguins. Naturalists accompanied the travelers,
offering valuable insight into the culture and history of the
region.”

“The trip was the grand prize in Magic’s Really Cool
Contest, introduced at the Linux Expo last May in Raleigh, NC to
encourage developers to build e-commerce solutions for Linux using
the Company’s core application development technology.
The
winning solution, BuyInsulation.com, which went live
last year with thousands of dollars worth of initial product
placement, is designed to help the mechanical insulation industry
more efficiently move overstocked, excess and/or odd-sized items
out of inventory.”
