The Winner of "We’re Linux" Video Contest

The winner of the "We’re Linux" contest will receive a free trip to Tokyo, Japan to participate in the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium, which will co-located with the Linux Kernel Summit, in October, 2009.

What Does It Mean to be Free?

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."

The second and third place are The Origin and Linux Pub. View all of the "We’re Linux" Video Contest entries here.
