Well, here it is, my first entry to advogato. I'm the
newest employee of the latest "free software" movement,
Spindletop. Created by Lucas Wagner, Spindletop is
dedicated to providing hardware solutions for Linux end
users. And yes, the home of the Blackbird.
I'm excited about the project and I'm relatively new to
Linux, more familiar with old school Unix. (but I'm
learning -- Fast ;-).
I met with Lucas a few times and we hit it off from the
beginning (which was only a couple of weeks ago). Our ideas
flow when we brainstorm and I'm convinced that Spindletop
will be an asset to free software end users not only
because we provide high quality, clean hardware but because
we are completely open to new ideas and people interested
in contributing to the movement.
