So, what are you waiting for? Enter our ZaReason Laptop Giveaway by Sunday, September 24 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (3:59 a.m. UTC) for your chance to win.


Have a great idea for a future Opensource.com giveaway? Let us know about it in the comments below.

Outside the office, you'll find me running, trying out new recipes, dominating in Sid Meier's Civilization, or catching up on my favorite movies, TV shows, and podcasts.


Glad to see ZaReason getting some visibility.

Is it ? I need that ?

great !! long live the open source!

I'm going to enter Jim Zemlin of The Linux Foundation. "The Year of the Linux Desktop" guy should really be eating his own dog food when he's out evangelizing.

this is great. Open source rocks.

It seems like Linux hardware vendors are coming out of the woodworks, which is great to see and makes sense.

I use Windows 10 and Linux at home, on numerous occasions Windows is missing a feature it may have once had and now costs money, or requires some other application. Burning CDs and playing DVDs, for example. I still can't burn, and downloaded VLC for playing DVDs.

Then I switch to Linux and use Brasero for burning CDs, and install the codecs to play DVDs in Totem (but could install VLC just like in Windows too)

At a convention I attended earlier this year, the large majority of attendees were running Apple laptops. I didn't run across anybody else running Linux, though I am sure there was at least some. I'd love to have a modern, more powerful (than what I have) laptop to represent the Linux option!

Just a thought, would whoever wins the Giveaway be able to pay the difference to increase the RAM or other components (based on what is available from ZaReason's website)?

I want that. :o)

open source means it's opened the world.
go ahead.

Open Source eating the world. Whoever do not like open Source now they are started using and participating the Open Source project.

Can you enter only one time, or do you get more chances by entering every day? ;)

I most certainly can use a real linux laptop.

When will the winner be announced?

We're in the process of reaching out to our winner right now. Once we confirm their eligibility and ship the prize, we'll post their name here.
