As I’ve explained in “Touring the Balkans to promote Free Software”, I’ve recently attended a conference in Albania (FreeSB) and one in Kosovo, (SFK10). Both conferences were about Free/Open Source Software (FOSS), which can play a crucial role in the cultural, educational, economic and social development of any emerging country. In this page I describe three talks from those conferences that help to prove this point. A presentation at FreeSB, for example, proved to me something I said last year: the greatness of FOSS is that it solves the problems that you actually have.
