Oh.  Hope you had a blast.  Wish I was there too; I work right nearby
(Foster City Blvd & 3rd Avenue) but did not know where the MS office
was. (And did not have a Windows product to return). :-(

There was a flower power image portrayed in the press -- of course an

Can't blame ESR for this of course, but OTOH the Open Source term has
come to be associated with his protest agenda.  For better or worse.

Either way, I did not want to rant so much.  Congratulations again to
Bruce for re-promoting "Free Software". :)
