Linux at Wimbledon

Another post about an article from the Beeb. This year’s Wimbledon tennis tournament will rely on Linux and Grid computing to keep their website and other services running smoothly. This is the first time I’m hearing about Linux being part of an actual sporting event and it’s nice to see it cover yet another territory.

Looking at some of the decisions made by the German government favoring Linux and open source, I believe it could be a big part of the IT infrastructure of the next Football (Soccer for you yanks) World Cup in 2006. It wasn’t during the 2002 tournament in Japan/Korea (I know because my friend was involved with that) so I would like to see it happen. Anyone require my services for Germany 2006?
