Subject: Re: [seul-edu] Fw: Red Hat Center (Refered by Joe Lacal)
I learned about open-source/free-software while at liberal arts college,
and it played a key role in my educational process.
I am very interested in getting open source into more educational
institutions, and would love to hear more, or even attend the
conference in September.
I would love to do anything to help.
