Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

You'd be free, free hackers too - if you only had the time.

So as a public service, we're delighted to provide the Free Software Song in an abbreviated, MP3 version entitled "RMS meets El Kabong".

It's 23 seconds long, a mere 43 KB, and Brett Glass, who made this inspired mix explains:

"El Kabong, in case he hasn't made it over to the UK, is an old Hanna-Barbera cartoon character intended to spoof Zorro. He fights evildoers by hitting them on the head with an out-of-tune guitar. See http://www.animationusa.com/hb/kabong.html."

Many thanks Brett, and queue the music! OK, queue, RMS anyway. ®
