FREE SOFTWARE Free software is COOL and ROCKS. It took me a while to realise that suddenly ALL my programs I used were legal! 100% legal software running on my computers. Not many of my friends can tell that about their computers.

FREE SOFTWARE Free software you can install as many times as you want. You can copy free software as many times as you want (hey you even can sell free software). With free software you have access to the source code. So if there is a bug in a tool you use, you can either fix it yourself or hire a software engineer to fix it. Hey you can get free software gratis (for 0 dollar), thats cool too. That means you can upgrade gratis as well.

FREE SOFTWARE Visit http://www.gnu.org for the GNU project (the first place to go about FREE SOFTWARE)

As Linus Torvalds (leader of the free linux kernel) says: "software its like sex: its better if its free"

IMPORTANT about me
Sacha Schlegel

Sacha Schlegel I was born 6th January 1971. I grew up in Liechtenstein, a very small country in the heart of Europe, between Switzerland and Austria. I got a bachelor in Computer Science from the Fachhochschule Biel, a postgraduate diploma in Computer Science, and a Masters by Research in Computer Science from the Curtin University of Technology in Perth Australia. After school I founded my own company called HavanaWave. After three years in Australia I spent 1/2 year in Bonn, Germany and than one year working in Scottsdale, Arizona, North America at Cyclone Commerce as Software Engineer. Currently I am back in Liechtenstein working for HavanaWave. You can contact me via email at sacha at schlegel dot li.
Since the 4th March 2000 I am happily married with Ursula Schlegel-Held.

The open directory project has the goal to become the largest human-edited directory of the web. The directory is comparable with the yahoo.com directory. Today I became the editor for the sub-directory Computers: Data Formats: Markup Languages: XML: Applications: ebXML . So stay tuned on ebXML and have a look at open directory project.

The 2nd February 2001, we left Europe and headed to Australia. We will stay in Australia for 2 years where I will do a masters in Computer Science and Ursula a cambridge first certificate. We are looking forward to this adventure. Why Perth, Australia? The West is the Best. Perth is not only a cool ozzie town no it is also the windiest city in the world. We both like to Windsurf so this the place to go. In December and January 2001/2002 we will head to Geraldton (Coronation Beach) to get real windsurf freaks. I whish my friend Andreas E. could join us but he has his diploma work at the University of Zurich. Maybe in 2002/2003 we can go for the SPEEDLOOP.
