    • Get under the hood(you have access to the code and no one is stopping you)
    • Not just behind the wheel(With non-free (proprietary) software, youll aways be just a consumer)
    • Groom our future(FOSS was key to the success of OLPC project. Why?)

    • Nice to get feedback ... at http://www.babytux.org/articles/howto/how2netknoppix.php. It described exactly what I was looking for - booting Knoppix over the network without having a dedicated machine with its own DHCP server. I will primarily use it to copy my Gentoo installation to a notebook which has no optical drive. But I like the idea of having a full-featured operating system ready to boot over the network :)Hi PeopleFor us in New Zealand, taprobane is the best linux weve used yet -- very stable with all userapplications seeming to be well chosen and best of their genre! Thanks very much to all the team. Hi, I just want to thank you for creating ii.do, it is simply the most clean, useful and versatile gtd app Ive ever used (I came from a gtd-apps tunnel like yours, tried everything!). Have a nice day :)
    • Most importantly... Have Fun!
