Linux.com holiday membership drive

By

The Linux Foundation has launched its holiday member drive. Sign up for benefits such as your own linux.com e-mail address and, for some, to be automatically entered into a draw to win a $75 gift card to the Linux.com store.

The Linux Foundation is the non-profit organisation dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux. Individual membership is available to any person who wishes to support the goals of the Foundation and the work of Linux Torvalds.

Members receive exclusive benefits such as a linux.com e-mail address, discounted pricing from Dell, HP and Lenovo, 35% discounts on O’Reilly books and e-books, among more.

The Linux Foundation alerted iTWire to its holiday drive promotion, stating any person who signs up for individual membership up to December 14th 2012 will be automatically entered to win of two $75 gift cards to the Linux.com store.

Unfortunately, the rules stipulate only legal United States residents over the age of 18 are eligible, and that current members who renew are excluded; this promotion is only available to new members.

These caveats are disappointing but ultimately moot; the reason to join is to directly support and promote the work of the Foundation which includes direct backing of Linus Torvalds himself. Individual membership is $USD 99 and student membership is $USD 25.

Whether you win the $75 gift card or not, the Linux.com store can hook you up with t-shirts, hats, mugs and accessories relating to your favourite free open source operating system.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.
