"Let's start with Linux International (LI). What are the
aims and goals of LI going forward?"
"We are much more organised and stronger than we used to be. We
have spent a lot of time in the last couple of years dealing with
the incorporation paperwork and getting everyone going in the same
direction. We are now at the point where we have got people in
charge of marketing and PR, we have a board of directors and are
managing to do some pretty valid stuff, while continuing to grow
"LI is an industry trade group -- a group of affiliate
organisations - and I think it is really starting to fulfil that
role in ways that up to now hasn't happened; we're getting some
really good traction now. I think LI will be something to watch
over the next six months to a year, and that is a good thing
because it's really time for it. Nobody is really promoting Linux
all the time, and it is time to really pick up the pace."
