- Radio Program:
Two days ago, I was invitated to speech in the Christmas Special radio program [Imatica]. The topic of the program was a debate around the SO world, both technically and philosophy aspects. Three persons was invited, one "expert" from windows world, a Mac enthusiast and me to be the linux and free software advocator.
It was really interesting and we spend more than an hour talking about diferences, advantages, ethical aspects and a few more topics about this eternally discussion...
I hope, I was able to persuade some listeners to try our SO and discover the freedom...
- Religious experience ;-):
Yesterday, I was triing to compile the new and hot 2.4.17 with the impressive preemptive patch, and i coudn't do it cause of bintuils problems on debian sid... I decided to enter into kernelnewbies channel from the openprojects irc net. I usualy never use the irc to solve my linux problems: google, mailing list archives and documentation are my inspiration fonts, but I decide to try it because I was unable to find a solution. After explain my problem to everyone and wait some seconds, rick van riel and another kernel hacker helps me to get my 2.4.17 running within a few minutes only following their instructions.
Talking some minutes with one of the kings of the kernel development, impressed me a lot. It was really really great and it increases my love and gratitude for the huge community around the free software.
