In the unlikely event of this actually happening, the author of this post reserves the right to decide who gets free beer

Now, is that beer free as in 'Software' or free as in 'Speech'?

TGI says moo

    I think that we should take the meaning of 'free' as it was explained in Bruce Perens message Free Software Leaders Stand Together ....

    "Remember that Free refers to liberty, not price... share and share alike... embrace and extend... "

    I like that idea ... you give me a beer ... I embrace it ... then I extend one back to you .... and we all share and share a like !!!

    Based on the I have come up with a new rule:

    Share a Pint o'Beer

    1. Everytime you boast Microsoft.

    2. Everytime GNU GPL is mentioned. <bl>

    Note: It all about the sharing. <bl>

    my $max = 13; my $speech = 0; my $beer = "free"; while ($beer){ ++$speech; die "No more beer" if $speech == $max; }
    The moral of the story is - as more free beer is provided, the free-er speech tends to become.
