Can I buy stock in Linux?
No, we aren't the official Linux website. We are one of many websites providing Linux information. Michael McLagan, an early Linux enthusiast and kernel contributor, registered Linux.org and founded the website in 1994, making us one of the first Linux sites. Because both Linux.org and Linux.com are fortunate enough to have these top level domains, we are often considered "official" websites, but the truth is that there is no official site. This is because, unlike proprietary operating systems, there is no "official" Linux product and therefore no official site to represent it. We consider this very important to point out because we often receive mail offering us partnerships, "strategic relationships" and the like and others that ask us to grant them franchises or permission to market Linux products. We can only grant or accept offers that have to do with us specifically. This also gets back to the question: Is Linux a company?
