Word for the day

>At SELF (http://www.southeastlinuxfest.org) this past weekend, one of the most interesting people I had the good luck to meet was Tarus Balog (http://www.adventuresinoss.com/), who is the CEO of OpenNMS(http://www.opennms.com and http://www.opennms.org). His blog plugged above has taught me my word for the day.

1. Freetard
A freetard is a unyielding proponent of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) like the linux operating system. They make no apologies for going on 10 minute rants about the importance of their impeccable values like “not paying for things” and “sticking it to the man”.

It’s nice to know that I have a label other than “geek”.
