First Day at Free Software World Conference

Arrived in Badajoz yesterday for the Free Software World Conference. Right now I sit in the empty “Sala Azul” with Görkem.

The venue looks nice, plenty of people. Unfortunately, all talks in Spanish yet, even Richard Stallman’s.

Just met Erkan, who leads the Pardus project. That’s a Linux distribution mainly for the Turkish market and it’s financed by the Turkish government. They pay 15 full time Linux devs – seems like the largest state run Linux developers group. Will write more about that project later.
