Maybe, I enphatized too much the problem of the accent. Do not worry: fortunately, this is
not the first time that I will speak in front to an audience. I kept in the past courses
for teachers, about UNIX, C, S.Wolfram Mathematica, Internet, etc.

The invitation in Firenze is not from a Linux User group, such FLUG. The invitation
comes from a political/administrative structure (gruppo Verdi, the "Green" Group).

A Linux user (or also a newbie) is prone to understand the eroism behind the free
software concept; but an alien, used to copy unpaid MS licenses,
simply tell "What? But Windows does it much better! Why to changes?"
