Anas Tawileh is a post-graduate student based in Cardiff, Wales in the United Kingdom. Yet the 29-year-old is doing an unbelievable job of promoting Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) in his home country of Syria. FLOSS is a freely available alternative to dominant software such as Microsoft Windows, Linux and other operating software. Please note: Observers believe Syria has provided assistance to the armed insurgency in Iraq that has claimed the lives of innocent civilians. We do not accept that one person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.
