People Who Support Linux: Tushar Kute

Linux

Over the past three years, Tushar Kute has converted from an occasional Linux user to a Linux evangelist.

But he didn’t fully embrace it as an operating system until he began teaching microprocessors and operating systems as a graduate student and assistant professor at the Sandip Institute of Technology & Research Centre in Nashik, India.

Converting to Linux has helped him get hands on with research and development and greatly increased his understanding of computer systems.

The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
