This paper describes the evolution of the Linux operating system, and
studies dynamics of socio-technical change using Linux
     as a case example. Theoretical models of community-based practice
and learning are combined with actor-network theory,
     and the characteristics of the open source development model are
described using the introduced theoretical concepts. The
     paper analyses the growth and development of Linux and its
development community, and shows how the development
     community evolves into an ecology of community-centered practices.
