Hello everyone,

over the weekend I had a look for different versions of the free
software song.

For an impression of what we are looking for:

Something like this:

or like this: (couldn't find
a peertube video)

or like this:

or totally different.

So if you have any idea I would be glade to hear about it :) I attached

Looking forward to all your great ideas.

Best wishes
