"With the exception of Tux, the Linux penguin, Linux fans have a reputation as a rather dour, serious lot. Now, the Linux Foundation, the non-profit organization dedicated to growing Linux, has launched a new Linux merchandise store featuring a line of exclusive and original T-shirts, hats, mugs and other items that reflect "geek culture."

"Of course, there's been geek culture t-shirts and such for sale before. ThinkGeek has long been a favorite of mine for buying presents for friends who enjoy t-shirts with Wi-Fi detectors on them and the like. But the Linux Foundation store, rather than just trying to copycat ThinkGeek's lines or just offer generic corporate "logo T's," is trying their own take on geek pride clothes and gear."
