Linux Credit Card Offered Through The Linux Foundation

Now you can support Tux in a new way, and Linus Torvalds too. According to the article today over at The Linux Foundation, UMB Bank is offering the Visa cards to qualified applicants. The cards are offered initially to US residents, with more countries to follow. From the site:

As a nonprofit organization funded primarily by member dues, the Linux Foundation provides a variety of important services, not the least of which is supporting Linus Torvalds’ full-time work on the kernel. The Linux credit card allows anyone to contribute to the community by enabling the Foundation to sustain and expand upon its important work.

The card boasts no annual fee as well as a rewards program and 24-hour roadside assistance, among other premium services.

Interested? I know I am. Feel free to head over the The Linux Foundation's website and apply today. And if you use the plastic Tux let us know what you think of the card's merits via the comment section below.
