Bank of America Rep Responds To No Linux Support
This isn't exactly fresh news but I think some of you might find this interesting. . The Bank of America is a Silver member of The Linux Foundation. Tim Golden -- Senior vice president at Bank of America Sits on the Linux Foundation Board of Directors.
A couple of months back, Skip Guenter, our Director of System Engineering noticed some disturbing language in an email he received from his bank. It dealt with his online banking and it concerned the "Electronic Disclosure Statement" online agreement he was being asked to agree to.
In a nutshell, it is asking BOA online banking users to agree that they are using specific hardware and software to do said banking. As you can see in the graphic above, Linux users are not included.
Skip wasn't comfortable in "agreeing" to this so he began the laborious task of trying to find the person who could change it.
