Sirko, alias gnokii,
needs a new laptop. His old one is mostly broken and horrible outdated, a
OS update appears hard, wireless-network is non existent and can not
added though the USB-1 connector. He works so much for the open source
graphics community, that it is hard for him to spent time on ordinary
money making. But the FLOSS community profits much from his digital art
and design work. Many projects, events and distributions obtained
flyers, logos, posters, web site designs and so on from Sirko. Or you
can visit his vector graphics on openclipart.org, attend one of his graphics workshops on FLOSS events or enjoy his Inkscape tutorials online.
Because of all these reasons, we like to see him happy using and
presenting Inkscape and all the other graphic tools by helping him
getting a actual graphics laptop.
A common device among designers appears to be one of the Lenovo Thinkpad Laptops. They are durable and well useable during
long bus and train travels. A L420 appears to be a good workhorse for a skilled artist like gnokii.
Hence the final goal of this campaign. The next events with him start
already in august.
