I just read in Aaron Seigo’s blog a very nice message from a user that proves that free software is making a difference in many areas, even in some that we don’t usually think about. Some quote:

I cant tell you how much I appreciate
the work you all have done. Its a work of art. If I could thank each and every one of
you I would.

You have given her the world to learn and explore.

So if you get frustrated or tired in
your work for Open Source/Free Software, just remember that somewhere in Missouri
there is a 14 year-old girl named Hope, an A-student who runs on the track team,
who is now your biggest fan and one of the newest users of Linux/Ubuntu.

Although I haven’t really participated in KDE or Ubuntu (not directly anyway), I too feel proud of what we, as a community, have created. Also, like that person, I feel very thankful for everything I have learned and got from the free software community.

Cheers guys, you all rock!
