I go to install fest whenever I can; I personally invite the other distros to
the party. We are all open source geeks; the idea is to share the technology
even between distros. If you want to keep your technology to yourself and only
for your community, I suggest you read the GPL. And, if you still disagree with
that statement, you can always find a home with Bill. We are all in this

and JavaOS developer therefore, I must be a triple agent?

If it was spying, they'd be wearing black clothes and jumping in through the
But seriously, an ambassador went along to an install party to see "how they
did it", so that Fedora ones can take any good ideas from it.
No harm in that, is there?
