on a new way of funding open-source software development.
"Those California residents who qualify for the $1.1 billion
MS antitrust settlement can choose to have money donated to open source
projects, including Mozilla, at a website set up by Lindows."
Microsoft antagoniser Lindows.com set up MSfreePC.com as an alternative to
the standard claims procedure agreed by Microsoft and Towsend and Towsend and
Crew, lawyers for the plantiffs. Whenever a qualifying consumer uses the site
to claim his or her share of the legal settlement, MSfreePC.com will
contribute 10% of the value of the claim to Mozilla or one of four other
open-source projects, including Debian, KDE, GNOME and OpenOffice.org.
