NetFlix Invites Open Source Cloud App Development

Netflix’s lack of official support for Linux may not do much to help its popularity within the open source world. Yet in a sign that the company does remain eager to wield stronger influence in this space???especially where it intersects with the cloud???it has announced a contest for open source developers ???to build something cool using or modifying our open source software.??? And it has committed a fair amount of cash to seeing the initiative through.
