Linux is turning 16 years old this year and boy has it grown up! This site http://linuxday.getnix.com was created as a place where you can personally thank Linus and all of the Linux Kernel developers. You can also take the time to share with the world how and why you started using your Linux based OS. On the 17th of September every year we will be challenging you to take Linux with you into your everyday life. Wear a shirt, slap a sticker on something, wear a hat or button. Hand out Live CD's with your favorite flavor of Linux on top! Let's take the time to show the people around us why GNU/Linux is Priceless!"
