I salute you for the effort you took for the grater good!

Yashar Koach!

As for Israeli shops selling Laptops with pre-installed Linux - I remember a
guy at the last August Penguin (2008) selling said Laptops by the staircase.

I can't remember the name but I know he has a web site...

Can any of you remember ?
