Re: Chronicle full page on Free Software (fwd)

This is from my local LUG.  It is about a full page story appearing in
today's San Francisco Chronicle. The web address is provided.

If I had a catchy quip, it would be here.

Debian/GNU Linux ... the maintainable operating system.

This was the result of a day long summit on free/open source software
sponsored by O'Reilly. I was lucky enough to be in attendance, and I think
every significant deity from this pantheon who lives in Northern
California was in attendance. Besides the four mentioned above, other
notables included:
Eric Allman (sendmail)
Brian Behlendorf (apache)
John Gilmore (gdb, Cygnus)
Jon Ousterhout (tcl)
Sameer Parekh (stronghold)
Eric Raymond ("Cathedral and Bazaar")
Guido van Rossum (python)
Jamie Zawinski (mozilla.org)
Phil Zimmerman (pgp)

It was an interesting day, to say the least.
