Linux Day is a grassroots network that coordinates the global celebration of Linux's anniversary every year as a form of thanksgiving. Linux Day is celebrated every August 25, or on the Saturday closest to August 25 if it does not fall on a Saturday.
The Linux Day Advisory Council develops the initiative's overall strategy, formulates ideas on how to make Linux Day events and related projects better, and assists in outreach to industry partners.
