"There are many people working today to change the
Linux desktop and they all have their own reasons and ambitions for
doing their work. One of the people working extremely hard at
realizing his own dream for the Linux desktop is Rodney Dawes. At
daytime he is a faithful employee at Ximian working on making sure
that the packages in Red Carpet are up to date. At night he is
working hard to make his GNU/Elysium Linux distribution a reality.
Having followed that silent but steadfast work of Rodney for some
time, I decided to bring his effort into the light and give people
with the same vision as Rodney a chance to join up."
