Bah... ok...perhaps that was a bit of harsh statement..... meh would
be better... However, I have met many south Americans down here who
want to get involved and us the sugar environment in their future
endevours once they return home. I worked for Guadalinex.-edu, the
largest single Linux deployment in the world.... conclusion: Great
softwware, not tailored enough for them (5 million computer, 500
laptops per year, Ubuntu latest, but via something complex like rsync
or anything like that... that just made a great job at adding
important parts if they were educational, and spoke about them the
folllowing year to see if others might want to include it. The biggest
advantage here is that because Spain now had over 10 years fo
successfully using Linux in all areas of life, its just a mtter of
showing any new things to make teahcers lives easier and really
kissing their asses so they cna push the rest if spain. Its clear
though, Linux is here to stay in Andalucia.... now hwat to u primtive
northern folks say to that.

Well the first step has been to try and get `people together here
which is damn hard... Iv'e ad 4-5 people involed here and we are
quickly moving towards creating a more ideas towards creating some
sort of charter fo what is an ettiquette of sorts, but nothing too
restrictive, more things like, if u'd like to something, then just set
a non conflicting date and do it
