Heya Carla,

This announcement came timely:

LinuxMag did an article here: http://www.linux-mag.com/cache/7439/1.html

The reason this professional organization cites for writing code for free
was to enhance it's user's experience allowing their virtualized Linux
guests run faster under their virtual platform. AKK covered this thought btw
in the first part of her response.
