Re: [PLUG] Fwd: PLUG N: "Hacking FOSSCON"... follow-up

Oh, I forgot.  I talked about Redmine, that I'm trying to get to use at

    " StartSSL Free (Class 1) certificates are domain or email validated"

    "Learn to code interactively, for free" (esp. for kids)

    "Effing Package Management...helps you build packages quickly and
easily (Packages like RPM and DEB formats)"

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
