Here is Cathy Malmrose's tale of how Zareason, her independent Linux hardware company, was born of chaos and Compiz Fusion:
"When you have a chaotic, non-routinized environment, creativity can often flow unchecked, or at least not-too-terribly-hampered by the marketing or finance department.
"One of the most beautiful aspects of LinuxLand is that, in its chaos, a wild creativity can spawn sweet and enduring projects. One of those projects, Compiz Fusion, was sparky enough to help me enter LinuxLand which in turn helped me build a hardware company."
