LibrePlanet is an annual conference for free software
enthusiasts. The conference brings together software developers, policy experts,
activists and computer users to learn skills, share accomplishments
and face challenges to software freedom.
Just because software is free doesnt mean its free software.This may confuse those who only know the Windows world, where the software animal known as freeware is readily available but truly free software is a bit more scarce. They may be excused for thinking, when we Linux users talk about free software, that they use free software too.
Is the mobile operating system "Ubuntu", a gateway to the influx of non-free software toward the GNU/Linux?
As you know, mobile applications are very popular with developers, programmers, the majority of whom may not be aware of the philosophy of free software. Whether this will lead to an All-out attack from closed source proprietary software toward GNU/Linux?
Do you believe that control over our computers is important to a free society? Do you want to help people learn why proprietary software and Digital Restrictions Management are harmful? Do you want to fight for software freedom?
The Free Software Foundation is looking for a summer intern to work with the campaigns team to promote and defend free software.
I've recently decided to try not to support any proprietary software, and see how far I can go with Free software.
Despite this, I realize Free software costs money to make, and would be happy to pay for some. Is there any way to sort through the software in Ubuntu Software Center to find some, or if not, what applications are there are there? (Examples would be great)
There are many different Linux distributions available, but not all of them are focused on providing a truly free software experience. What do I mean by free software? Well, I don’t mean free as in free beer. I mean free as in the freedom do what you want with it.
