buzzed, B&W


Man, I really like open source software in general (hence my using products such as PDFCreator for making PDFs at work, Firefox as my primary browser, Semagic for posting here, Audacity for editing/mixing sound, the GIMP for manipulating images, Apache for my web server, etc etc. Mainly this is because the software is free (as in beer) - the free (as in speech/libre) part of it is nice, but it's really a background consideration. It does make me feel better to know that I'm not pirating software, but I'm not an extremist like RMS.
