Shuttleworth Buys Stake in ImpiLinux September 28, 2005

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.
trackback

ImpiLinux is a distribution from South Africa.

ImpiLinux started as a project of the Gauteng Linux Users group
in 2001. During January 2005 ImpiLinux became a business. We have
a social business model whereby we give back to the community as
much as we can and still deliver a small profit to our investors.

Tectonic tells us that Mark Shuttleworth’s VC firm – HBD has become a majority stake holder in ImpiLinux’s business, which has a lot to do with the distribution, Linux training and support. Mark’s VC firm is totally seperate from Ubuntu Linux. I just thought this news might interest some South African readers, and followers of Linux’s growth around the world.

ImpiLinux should soon start to base it’s distro off of Ubuntu, though that is not the case currently.

Implications for Ubuntu? – nothing major, I suppose, except maybe more visibility in South Africa.

Hi!
I with you completely agree also I too I consider(count), that ImpiLinux should soon begin to be based. It would be very even not bad!
