[News] Report from OpenSUSE Day in Chile

Hash: SHA1

openSUSE Day (Chile): Awesome.

,----[ Quote ]
| And the day came. After a six hours trip on bus, and a few minutes of sleep I 
| got to Santiago de Chile. Francisco Toha picked me up so we headed to  
| Universidad Andres Bello for the openSUSE Day. Huge building and plenty of 
| room for everyone. The event started almost on time. I followed the first 
| talk, a bit hoping to have a decent internet connection so I could show a 
| live SUSE Studio test drive. OK, that didn’t happen. The internet traffic 
| ratio was too slow like waiting 59 minutes to build an JeOS appliance was 
| nuts so that was definitely the low aspect of the talk.      



Chilean anti-piracy law drafted on pirated software

,----[ Quote ]
| Chilean lawyer Guillermo Frêne is having a bit of a bad
| hair day after it was revealed that draft legislation aimed
| at cutting the internet connections of illegal downloading
| ne'er-do-wells was presented in .doc format written on
| pirated software.
| The full outrage was exposed here, which shows that the
| firm of attorneys responsible for the document goes by the
| rather unusual name of "The houze"...


Microsoft will turn Chile abstention into a Yes?

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite the 217 comments tabled
| by Chile in September, the Microsoft puppets
| are well active in the Committee
| and will vote this Tuesday to turn the vote
| of the country from an abstention
| to a Yes. You can expect more of those
| things happening until the end of March.



The day Chile was Bought by Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Just today, a secret agreement
| between MS and the Chilean Government came to
| light. In it, every citizen was
| sold as a potential user of a Windows Live
| Spaces model where every SSN is
| linked to, overbypassing any privacy term and
| cashing Bill some bucks. It
| wouldn't be so awful to all if that agreement
| wasn't aprooved yet (Spanish follows).


Chilean Mapuches in language row with Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Mapuche Indians in Chile are trying t
| take global software giant Microsoft
| to court in a legal battle which
| raises the question of whether anyone
| can ever "own" the language they speak.
