Amitay Tweeto lives in Bet Shemesh, Israel and is the Winner of this video contest. Hi’s 25-year old freelance graphic designer and UI consultant entered this contest because he thinks Linux is suffering from bad PR. When people think of Linux they think "technical," gray stuff for programmers only. Amitay wants to let people get to know the other side of Linux, the flexibility they can get with no technical background. "That’s the reason why I love Linux, it can be everything I want it to be."
