I’m not much of one for affinity credit cards. You know, the ones bearing the logo of your favorite sports team, school, or what have you. But, I have to confess I like this new affinity Visa Platinum credit card that’s being issued by the Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.
As Jim Zemlin, executive director at the Linux Foundation, said in the card’s announcement, “This credit card is in response to requests by individuals who want to get involved and support the Linux Foundation’s community activities. Some people write code while others work on marketing or defending Linux. The Linux-branded credit card is an easy way for anyone to contribute to the growth of Linux and identify themselves as supporters of the community by carrying Tux in their pocket.”
