What implications does it have? Of course, I try to give it a different emphasis, ellaborating on Free Knowledge, on software being an expression of science.<ul>

    I want to know if it is possible to use part of his presentation “¿Qué es el software libre?” in a lecture on free software, I have listened to your presentation file gasu_debian.mp3 and I was delighted.
