The first Linux monument in history unveiled in Russia

written by Vlad Lazarenko - 33 Comments

Tyumen Linux user community  has unveiled a Linux monument featuring Tux, a Linux mascot. The project is sponsored by the Sergey V Mikhailov, a CEO of the Tyunet hosting provider.In this monument Tux is depicted with eagle wings that symbolize Linux’s strength and unlimited possibilities.

Who said that penguins can’t fly? Here is an example! A small bird has made things, that were not given to it by the mother nature, by itself – wings. We wanted to somehow help Tux to become more popular and we finally ended up with this project.

Commented Sergey V Mikhailov.

So far it appears to be the first Linux monument in history.

    There was no license information available on source web site (in Russian). I believe you can use this photo just like I did. If you still want to get some kind of permission explicitly, write to, the original poster.
