FLOSS in Egypt (and bits of the Middle-East)

,----[ Quote ]
| Ladies and gentlemen meet the FLOSS Community 
| in Egypt. Where should I start. Well there is 
| a community but before I state my opinion on 
| it let me explain how it functioned the last 
| time I checkedâ. It is just like the regional 
| policy â1 BIG guyâ and everyone follows, and 
| some others trying to overthrow him, not to 
| provide a better option but rather to occupy 
| the position of a leader. Activities of 
| communities are almost only âInstallation 
| festsâ and once a year at some university a 
| weekend (in which no one really would show up 
| due to their educational and society problems) 
| they try to hold a little speech about FLOSS.
