In 2006, Cathy Malmrose started a non-profit, Partimus.org to support OLPC. When technology in education did not take off, she and her husband formed their own company, ZaReason, building mostly Ubuntu laptops, desktops and servers. She built the company leaner, stronger and more precision-driven than the bigger builders and she has greatly enjoyed the support of the community. Not only is she devoted to building computers optimized for free distros, she spent one entire summer traveling up and
down New Zealand coastline searching for the infamous and quiet shy penguins that are one of our mascots.
