I love using open source software that allows me to actually make the needed tweaks that commercial software locks me out of. In the world of shrinking budgets, a lot of times the open source is our only option, and for a lot of applications it actually works better.

So happy OSCON is in Portland, just wish my company wasn't so cheap and would pony up the bucks to send me. Would love to go, already have the week off for OBF.
