 Fashionistas meet penguinistas

"Fashion and Linux -- it's not a familiar combination. You get a mental picture of an open source hacker in an extra large T-shirt and long fuzzy beard on a runway on Seventh Avenue. It's as unlikely as the fashion industry, which is slow, technologically speaking, moving away from tried and true methods of doing business (read: even if it's broke, don't fix it, because at least we're used to it, and what's wrong with AS/400 anyway?). But Ed Foy of Brick, N.J., has made it his business to break all the rules. He's helping celebrities sell clothes -- a lot of clothes -- using only Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl."
