That's certainly nice of SFI, and generous of you to do. What operating
system is those CDs' software for?
Things may have changed, but, over all the years I've know SFI, it's
really almost entirely been about this, i.e., TheOpenCD for MS-Windows
After contacting his local LUG regarding this idea he was referred to
project, which maintained a CD of high-quality Free Software for Windows
that matched Matt's (so far vague) vision. Matt proposed the idea of an
international day of handing out Free Software CDs in TheOpenCD forums,
and project leader Henrik Omma and project contributor Phil Harper both
shared this vision and began collaborating immediately.
I ask just for clarity. I'm making no comment on which OSes various
people choose to do volunteer work to help support strangers on, though
I have my own personal preferences.
