Hi everybody,

I do not know if you also received this, but perhaps you can help to get
a list of universities which force people to use non-free software to
access the wireless network.

Best wishes,

It seems that some universities (University of Illinois @ Chicago?) are
requiring their students to install special nonfree software and to use a
nonfree operating system in order to access their wireless network.

If you've been affected by this kind of policy, would you please write to us at
membership at fsf.org and tell us about it?
