Abstract

Linux has played a part in our everyday lives, not just in a technical sense, but in a cultural sense.The Linux community is an exemplar of the quintessential Open Source community. The Linux community fosters a passion for the open source mindset, a passion that has driven people to advocate far more widely for the open source way to be a guiding light for how we live together as a society. In New Zealand the Open Source community has been a driving force behind a great deal of positive transformation in government that is starting to impact peoples everyday lives.
