Interview with the head of the Caos Foundation

Aditya Nag writes “I recently got a chance to interview Greg M. Kurtzer, the head of the Caos Foundation, the people who make cAos and CentOS Linux.

I see from your donations page that you are incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. Are you registered in California, or in some other state?

We are actually incorporated in Delaware because there are several benefits that Delaware offers that other states don’t (which is why the majority of US companies are incorporated in Delaware). We registered as a not-for-profit
organization with the goal of becoming 501c3 or similar. We just finished the paperwork which allows us to be based out of California.

At the moment, we have not obtained US IRS tax exemption status. We are estimating to do this mid 2005.”
