There's a short (1.5 weeks) window of opportunity now, to register for
        Free promotional stuff to promote Software Freedom Day.
Users need to combine, per city round the world, into teams with users
of other BSD & other Linux etc, & register teams Quickly to
qualify for the freebie promo article kits to be posted in time to
arrive for for Software Freedom Day events. 

So talk to friends in your cities who use BSD & Linux
Here's something I posted last night with URLs

I imagine Microsoft smile when free source groups squable
amongst themselves for crumbs falling off the edge of the table.
Best avoid the divide & lose route of:
        BSD v Linux v.,
        & Linux { Debian v RedHat v Ubuntu v ...  }
        & BSD { Free v Net v Open v Dragon v ... }
        & Gnome v KDE & gcc V. clang  ... etc etc
& unite to convince some MS market share to migrate to free source.

Creating city teams can be done by anyone, no programmer skill needed.
