New Meetup: Dallas Open Source Saturday February Meetup

Announcing a new Meetup for Dallas Open Source Saturday!

What: Dallas Open Source Saturday February Meetup

When: Saturday, February 6,[masked]:00 AM

Los Lupes ~ Addison
3855 Belt Line Rd
Addison, TX 75001

February Meeting motto is "Won't you be my Open Valentine?"

So everyone raise their hand if you end up supporting other people's computers... and raise the other hand if those computers run Windows. This is what Bill Gates and Co. call "The Position". As far as you know... ;)

Anyway... This month we will spend some time with a few of my favorite Open Source Windows apps.
- UltraDefrag (vs freeware SmartDefrag)
- UltraMan (kidding, but wouldn't that be cool!?)
- UltraVNC (wicked cool remote control, no relation to above)
- Foxit PDF Reader (no totally open, but free and based on the GPL ghostscript)
- PDFCreator (also ghostscript, and FOSS itself!)
- Honorable Mention to Open Office and the Open Document Format
- Firefox, Chrome and HTML5 support

Remember to checkout and update: Loading XP - a FOSS checklist
It is a wiki so put in your own FOSS apps right there!

Bring your stories of how MS latest file format screwed you over, please limit to 2 per person.

Lastly, why no Flash on the iPhone, iPad and iTouch? Is it the HTML5 video tag rumors??
I say *NO* and I'll tell you why.
