How Linux Has Impacted Your Lives - Celebrating 30 Years of Open Source
Kristin OConnell | 14 June 2021
In April, The Linux Foundation asked the open source community: How has Linux impacted your life? Needless to say, responses poured in from across the globe sharing memories, sentiments and important moments that changed your lives forever. We are grateful you took the time to tell us your stories.
We’re thrilled to share 30 of the responses we received, randomly selected from all submissions. As a thank you to these 30 folks for sharing their stories, and in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Linux, 30 penguins were adopted* from the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds in their honor, and each of our submitters got to name their adopted penguin.
Check out the slides below to read these stories, get a glimpse of their newly adopted penguins and their new names!
Thank you to all who contributed for inspiring us and the community for the next 30 years of innovation and beyond.
*Each of the adopted wild African penguins have been rescued and are being rehabilitated with the goal of being released back into the wild by the wonderful and dedicated staff at SANCCOB.
