Parent article: On the future of LWN
Dear LWN team.
It has been suggested yesterday already, but I didn't see it mentioned as option:
Why not ask some of the global Linux players like IBM, RedHead, SuSE etc.
LWN is an important online source of information. Every company in the Linux market should appreceiate this.
They employ developers (some well known ones) working on various parts of Linux.
Why shouldn't they employ people doing a Linux online mag ? Or if employment is not a viable option, at least some bigger, regular donations might be possible.
Wouldn't some kind of fund be a good idea ? All the Linux companies paying into a fund, out of which Open Source related work - like LWN - is paid !?
Maybe somebody has just to ask them...
Anyway, whatever happens... thanks for 4+ years of interesting information and commentary. Good luck for your future.
With kind regards,
