LibrePlanet is an event organized by FSF. is owned by
the FSF. The code of conduct at is defined by the FSF.

[URI] : /Red/, /understood/ -> my way, ever, is Free as Freedom

On /your/ post: I think even inside the FSF twelve employees[1] circle there are xxxions, contradictions and disagrees on one point or over, we have pleasant words on the net about /Free Software guru/ R. M. Stallman, himself laughing about that on a portrait with an old-time large hard disk plate. But this hopefully has nothing to do with a religious sect :)

On that post top, you would see in headers the word Subject, with for [topic] a second interesting word following [libreplanet-, meaning we can xxx] /about/ Free Sowtware, but more xxx] /on/.

I will never agree any constraint on what me nor anyone would do with our computers, including having proprietary software/os on her computer, even in my family:

I demonstrate each time I go my aunt house how clumsy, insecure, resources and money greedy is her programs/OS, how cool are the several well organized menus and kinds of WM... I change each visit in case one would bluff her enough, and how powerful are my graphical apps compared to her ones (maybe the fact I use often a terminal seems to her GNU/Linux is reserved to professionals, but I ensured her it is not necessary but simpler for me on some tasks, and more secure for admin tasks she will likely never had to do, explaining her MS-W$ is numerous times complex on that).

I installed them Gimp and Firefox, then Thunderbird (and she continue to use her Internet Vendor bloody web interface which change every six month), but never done more because she /don't ask me/.

I just wait for a major crash :)

On the other hand, I'm really impaired in using exclusively Free Software[2] by what impairs Free Software itself, which is a "Free Software impeachment by design":

* unpublished hardware specs (including suddenly hardware vendor policy changes on publishing, and unpublished hardware chips changes), * software patents (including abusive software patents (clue any skilled in the art has) such as Four Colors separation, un-logical software patents states policies on what I call /natural things/ such as mathematics, software copies of mechanical/chemical process, and living thins)
 * biased concurrency
* and fact /our own data/ is made prisoner (unpublished formats, ...), despite of recommendations and requirements (professional)

I'm afraid the xxx-offending-word could be censored on that thread, so please replace....


[1] I just see the ironic now passing orthogaffic corrector, hoping they successfully recruited the 2 other persons they searched for :)
[2] Currently:
    (a) kernel blob/wlan nic (iwl4965 : thanks Mr Intel)
    (b) SANE *proprietary module* (Epson V600 photo scanner)
(c) proprietary Flash Plugin I can't get rid because of unpublished new swf format... maybe I will lauch one day or other my own Affero-GPL'ed dating site :P
