We are ready to launch for the Washignton DC trip trip to take on those
who are selling out Free Software to Microsoft.
The Egov-OS is a bait and switch, supposedly to encourage Free Software in
Government. Instead, Tony Stanco, the chief organizer, with the help of Bruce
Perens and George Washington University decided to give Microsoft a free ride to
peddle their 'Shared Source' junk at the government. This followed the fiasco at
NY Linux World Expo, where Microsoft one a 1st place price for developing something
using their non-competitive practices.
This trip, like all the other NY Fair Use trips, is funded by NYLXS. We are dressing
like the Founding Fathers:
George Washington never told a lie!! BUT GWU DOES!
Fight for Free Software jobs, contracts and use in Government!
