"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 our membership."
"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."
