Why free is better than open

You might have noticed, that the latest issue of the Debian Project News was delayed. It where ready - more or less in time (thanks for those helping us), but for some reason it didn't passed the spam filters of our listserver.

Today listmaster explained we why. The reason: I mentioned and linked to a Debian birthday party, which was celebrated virtually in second live. It took place on their free and open Island which has the URL www.freeandopenisland.org.

Noticed anything? I'll write it down again: www.freeandopenisland.org.

That's why free is better than open ;)

PS: The pictures of that party look kind of cool. A virtual party in a virtual world where virtual people wear virtual Debian T-Shirts...
