Hello Michael,

I agree with your assessment, I like Rio's idea of using FOSS.

It's true they won't get that we mean liberty; but why should they care
about open source anyway? "open source is for programmers" they will
say. I like the use of "Free Software (FOSS); such as Ubuntu Linux"

Regards, Martin
