Teams of students from universities in the United States are invited to compete in the first annual “TuxMasters Invitational” contest by writing and submitting open-source Linux code applications. The teams will develop projects based on the Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) Data Center Linux Technical Capabilities Guide. A group of six judges, including Unisys and OSDL Linux experts, will select the top entries based on written essays and the creativity, completeness, and usability of the code. Winners will be announced this August at the annual LinuxWorld conference in San Francisco. The winning university will be awarded a Unisys 8-way ES7000 server with Intel Itanium 2 processors running SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9. First-place student teams will receive personal computers, Apple iPods, and Sony Playstation PSPs.
