A "University of MIcrosoft" would qualify as FDI in education and hence is
not desirable.
Ok. We set up a "University of Free Software". Who is going to run it? We
are unable to bring out good documentation as of now and still have a long
way to go with other aspects... how do you suggest we go about this? We
already find it tough to maintain a few full time employees for FSF(if I am
not mistaken)...
Let us work towards protecting and improving what we already have.
