About us

Gábor Kum with his family

HELLOTUX is a family business of Gábor Kum. He is a Linux system administrator and a software developer, Linux user since 1999. His wife Maria and his little son, Viktor are Linux users too. His daughter, Anna still doesn't use a computer.

The first Linux

We made our first Linux shirts 15 years ago, in 2002 and had various t-shirt projects in cooperation with the Hungarian Linux community and with Linux portals. In 2009 we decided to open PingvinBolt, our Hungarian Linux t-shirt shop, than about one year later our international one, HELLOTUX.

embroidered Debian logos

We embroider every shirt individually, with care and love using our programmable embroidery machine. When making patterns for these machines you usually need a lot of proprietary software, and almost all of them are running under Microsoft Windows. We solved this problem with Wine and a machine-independent software from a small company. It is not free software, but at least we are able to use it under Linux, and it is a much better feeling.

Embroidery designing under Linux

We are not just another t-shirt shop with some Linux shirts, but we are a shop with only Linux and free software shirts. It does really matter.
