Yet another iteration of the seemingly endless supply of Raketas. This once has a nice, elegant, face. But the real reason why I had to get it is that it features a couple of penguins. The penguin is the mascot of the Linux kernel, the heart of the GNU/Linux free operating system. As a proud and card-carrying member of the Free Software Foundation and the Electronic Frontier Foundation I simply had to get one of these watches. Wearing it celebrates the fact that I have been 100% in the marvelous world of free software since 2000 (of course, this website was also designed with free software).

Of course, the real purpose of this watch was to celebrate the Russian exploration and science stations on the South Pole, but I choose to see it as an endorsement of the values of freedom.
