Wow, I'm feeling overwhelmed by the coolness of our Free Software world.

The XOrg X11 v6.7 server was released today. Finally, forward moving X11 development of the (not horribly licensed) XFree86 codebase unhindered by the ridiculous politics of the XFree86 project. (It also seems to be achieving everything the Xouvert project set out to achieve - cutting out the deadwood and using libraries already installed on a system rather than bundling the preverbial kitchen sink.)

The next 12 months will be very good months for Free Software, especially Gnome which is really impressing me every minute that I use it. So many motivated, excellent hackers.

Then of course there's the jewel of the crown - Linux 2.6.5 rocks for me.

From strength to strength... the future is bright. The future is Free!
