Tchelinux, Free Software in motion!


The passion has led a group of users to gather and work together in organizing events to promote the open source philosophy in educational institutions in Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. In order to reach as many students as possible, the group decided that the events should always be free of charge, however the attendees are always encouraged to donate 2kg of non-perishable food, which is sent to charities in the cities where the events take place.

Since October 2006 Tchelinux has held more than 80 events in 20 cities with the help of thousands of volunteers who helped in organizing and presenting over 1200 talks, attended by 10 thousand people who donated 16 Tons of food to 40 charities.

There's still a lot to be done and everyone is welcome to participate in Tchelinux, helping to spread the Free Software and bring knowledge to all corners of Rio Grande do Sul state!


We're counting on you!
