LET's USE LINUX is the phrase we use this year to promote the use of GNOME and Fedora.

During the GNOME PERU FEST 2014 we presented GNOME 3.10 and Fedora 20 as Linux projects.

This was divided in two parts: installing and how to contribute with both projects.

IBM Perú is an important IT company in Peru and the event is going to be held in its campus. in La Molina.

Members of GNOME and Fedora were invited to do a testimony about their contributions around the world.

Specialists of IBM guided students during the installations in the first part of the event.
