    Tux goes to Wimbledon

    The Wimbledon tennis tournament will be relying on Linux and Grid computing to keep everything running smoothly during the two weeks of the championship.

    Preparations for Wimbledon are well under way. Following a pilot project in 2003, the internal computer network at the All-England Club has been converted to the open source operating system.

    The change means that both the public-facing website for Wimbledon and its internal intranet are now using Linux.

    I enjoy Mandrake toast with a little apple butter.

    But on a serious note...It's good to see Linux being used by non-techie people.
