Pip finds his benefactor

Almost 6 months to the day after it was announced, the anonymous donor of the XBox challenge has been revealed as Michael Robertson, chief executive of Lindows.com (and founder of MP3.com). His identity was revealed in a bulletin board on SourceForge

Robertson has officially extended the deadline for the contest, since no group has successfully completed a full working version. He’ll still dole out the $200k, given that none of the contracts against his life are successful in the mean time.
