Today (September 19th) is Software Freedom Day. It’s always good to have an excuse to increase the awareness of Free Software.
Today what all of us free software users should do is to tell just one computer user about free sotware. Tell them about community, tell them about sharing, tell them about collaboration. For free software isn’t just about free of charge computer software, today should not be just about that, either. Tell them about why you are using free software instead of proprietary ones, show them that they have a choice.
When they learn what free software is, show them a couple of alternatives: GNU/Linux, BSD, Firefox, OpenOffice.org, GIMP, Blender, Inkscape, Ardour, Audacity, Hydrogen, Rosegarden, Avidemux… and many more.
Happy Software Freedom Day!
