    Open Source Education Foundation becomes non-profit
    Submitted by hmcgregor on Thursday, July 25, 2002 – 16:38
    OSEF announced Thursday approval of its application for non-profit tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3), allowing the organization to begin actively pursuing tax-deductible contributions to assist in project development.

    Most of OSEF’s current work in K-12 education has been based on the Debian distribution of GNU/Linux. Several new projects are in the works, and OSEF is collaborating with the Debian Jr. Project.

    Subject: misunderstanding…

    I should apologise for my origianl troll like post. Sorry.

    My comment was in response to the headline of the article, not the content of the article. I’ve noticed that when people forget to mention what part of the world they are from, often it turns out they’re from the USA.

    Headline: Open Source Education Foundation announces tax-exempt status
    Me: tax-exempt where?
    Article: USA
    Me: Oh, right, pardon me, of course…

    And so, in frustration, I snipped.
