Submission + - Bono: Turn (RED) Into Red Hat (

jsharp writes: "(RED) could achieve massive scale — and become the Linux of charity organizations — by adopting GPL.

Product (RED) has the potential to be mind-blowing. But it is stuck in second gear right now. Turning (RED) into "Red Hat" would enable a large number of manufacturers to sign up for the program, and enable unprecedented scalability. Using GPL as the basis for trademark licensing, and Red Hat as the basis for structuring certification and support, would enable much more money to be raised with minimum impact to the (RED) organization, and maximum positive impact on Africa."
