    nice!! this is very nice!
    and "we" should rename bsdcon back to freebsdcon and kickout all the openbsd guys and send them to this place. The point is that in these times this kind of division is not nice, and yes yes yes I "bet" other BSDs are going to be welcome, but there is more BSD generic names than bsdcon.

      What is the problem here? An OpenBSD users group in Italy is holding a conference about OpenBSD. Why would they not be allowed to call it 'OpenCon'?

      This is a simple OpenBSD conference...

      The title ""First in Europe" is because the 1° ONLY OpenBSD conference.

      - 2/3 October in Italy (MILAN) - Guficon a FreeBSD Conference.
      i'm registered :)

      Many people in FreeBSD partecipate a OpenCON and viceversa.
      We are free mans in free country :)

      OPENCON is a simple Openbsd conference...end

    I think that developing countries discovering unix/linux/windows is a good thing.

      A few days ago Portugal was in South America, and now Italy is a developing country. Yuck! :-)

        I think the only thing that stopped italy from being in another region is that the title said "in Europe"

      2. By MotleyFool ( on

        Arrrgh, I hate to say this as a US citizen but the people stating Portugal is in South America and that Italy is a developing nations are probably US citizens that are in the xenophobic state which, unfortunately, a lot are infected with nowadays.

          I am a US citizen too, and there's only one thing coming in my mind: who cares where's portucal or italy, is this really important? of course not! The only thing that really matters to me is that God blesses America, that this is the land of freedom, no other country is as brave or free as our nation. We are the strongest country in the world, the more advanced in matter of education, technology, finance, etc.

            Oh!! yeah!! over all things freedom... But what about rights or freedom of the civilian people in Vientam, Corea, Panama, Afganistan, Irak.... bla bla...
            You must read a little before post a comment like this.... ok?

          2. By Anonymous Coward ( on

            Maybe your country is the land of freedom, but what can you do with this freedom when most of U.S citizen don't know how what objectivity is and believe they are free to think whereas they don't know how to think, since they were brain washed by media since childhood.

            You could read some excellent work from Noam Chomsky, like "Necessary Illusions" or "Propaganda and Control of the Public Mind"

            And of course you will say this is crap, because you were brain washed like many other people, including me, and we were told that this is crap. Let's see if you can still use your mind...

              i'm still waiting for all you free thinking world citizens to realize you're getting the trolling of a lifetime and just can't wait to gobble it all up. come on, these posts are so obviously retarded.

            Oh come one! This is the joke of the year.

            1. By jake ( on

              In all of this 'my nation is better then your nation' try and actually compare your nation with other nations. Why not inform yourself!?

              The UN releases the 'human development report' each year, which has an enormous amount of statistics

              I'm a Scandinavian, so I might be a little biased.

              But I'll compare Norway to the US, just for fun.

              GDP per capita: Norway: 36600$ US: 35700$
              Human Poverty Index: Norway: 7.1% US: 15.8%
              Illiteracy: Norway: 8.5% US: 20.7%
              HIV prevalence: Norway: 0.1% US: 0.6%

              And did I mention that health care and college/university studies is free of charge where I'm from, payed by the government.

              Not counting the international treaties not signed by the US, which the entire world has signed, except a few dictator states. That plus in reality having two parties to choose from makes a great democracy, I say!

              Why sign international conventions on "Abolition of child labour", "Convention on the rights of the children", "Freedom of association and collective bargaining" and numerous others.

              And we shouldn't talk about the countless violations of human rights, condemned by the rest of the world, which the US have been tried and found guilty of in the international courts.

              But then again, it was all a joke, so who am I to take a stand like this ;D So go back watching that newscaster and pledgeing Allegiance to your flag..

    I live in Italy and
    sometime I do believe we are -for many reasons- a third world country.

    ..but always with some style!
