"Maximum Linux magazine and web site (http://maximumlinux.com) wouldn't exist without the efforts of the free software community," says Alison McCreery, Marketing Manager at Maximum Linux. "And the Debian Project (www.debian.org) is a free software success story. With over 6000 packages and nearly 600 developers, Debian is one of the largest free software projects. They are extremely dedicated to upholding the cooperative values of the free software movement and have proven the value of open source development. The raffle is our way of acknowledging their contribution."
