GNU/Linux and Free software
GNU/Linux, freedom, people
The best "feature" of Linux and other free software (free as in freedom, not price) are the people around it, the community. Excellent technical support, new friends, something whose value cannot be measured in dollars or euros. Here are reports of some events I've attended in the past.
Some of the links point to the Internet Archive, as the original site is not available any more.

My contributions have been organizing events and other activities in user groups in order to make free software accessible to more people.
The few pieces of code listed below are not being updated any more and here mainly for historical interest.
- Thumbnail page generation tools
