free software foundation suggests people send valentine's greetings to free software developers. i could be wrong, but i think it's a great idea. i don't get many excuses to bother devs with thank yous.
i'm not only a huge fan of sugar. i have sugar to thank for helping introduce me to all of these: linux-libre (via trisquel-con-sugar) trisquel, python, gnewsense. i tried trisquel because it included sugar, i learned python because of pippy. after 25 years of coding in basic, python is probably my favorite language.
i know sugar is developed for kids and that's great. i learned basic as a kid, and i believe very strongly in pippy and i think turtleart is absolutely ingenious.
i know i have (a) team(s) to thank, but in the interest of not making spam filters angry and retributive i'm just sending this valentine to you. maybe you'll share it? thanks everyone.
