The last several years I have been using Linux exclusively for my work and private affairs. Before this time I used Linux for various activities, including its use as a firewall and server in student-appartement building.

In my humble opinion Linux and Open Source/Free software methodologies in general are the next evolutionary step for the whole IT-industry.

Linux-Aktivaattori was founded to promote Linux inside Finland, on our project-page you can see what our current activities include.

If you have ideas on promoting Linux effectively I am eager to hear about them.

Thanks for your interest,
