That was an excellent piece in "The Gadget Show" this evening, about
source software.

I've posted details on the Fedora Linux mailing list.

Let's have more of the same good stuff, please.

I can't remember the exact content of the program, but they were certainly 
showing off The Gimp, and a couple of other things.

I thought WOW the message is going out, but I've never seen anything else like 
it since.
