Serendipitous Flattr-y

Contributing cash to an open source project was never easier.

Recently, I had a Facebook debate with some of my friends about Microsoft ads that appear in Linux publications or on Linux-focused websites. One friend thought that Microsoft ads “pollute” Linux sites. Another friend said, “Oh, the irony! Microsoft’s ad dollars support a Linux website.” I lean toward the “A girl’s gotta eat” philosophy and think that if any ad is a decent fit for the audience, more power to it. The ad in question is for a Windows server, and I know from experience that plenty of Linux enthusiasts work with Windows, too, which makes that ad a good fit in my book.
