I like it. What about you, Mr. Michel? And Mr. De Croo?
 
That's impressive! And that's why Singapore is such good place for iText to open an office! Come meet us at #CommunicAsia June 2-5.
Everyone needs a hobby. For Lee Hsien Loon, that happens to be writing C++ Sudoku solvers and publishing them on the Internet. Lee Hsien Loong also happens to be the Prime Minister of Singapore.

Many people confuse free open source software with freeware. To help these people understand that open source software can be used for free in some cases, but not in all cases, we've made this 1-minute movie. Enjoy!
