Free Software – Are You In?

“We have managed to increase our lifespan in a world that is not fit to live in” (from “The Man from Earth”).

This is rather an absurd beginning to an article, but imagine if I were to be sued for quoting from a movie – how completely insane! It would be like being punished for sharing my class notes with a friend (or even worse).

But the state of the software world right now is much like this. Closed source software have managed to grab a popularity for which no reason seems to exist. Such software (non-free) restricts the freedom of the user, and is extremely annoying at times.

So I take this opportunity to encourage all my readers to adopt Free Software instead of non-free ones. For only free software can build a free computing society.

I shall be making a presentation on this topic in my college tomorrow, under the auspices of the Sun Academic Initiative. The presentation itself shall be available here tomorrow.

Until then, stay free.

PS: Coming up next – how to load remote javascripts at “runtime” from the server!

  1. I am using the world’s best online TV viewing software. Spend a lot of time at the computer. For this reason than to watch tv on pc software is required. Thousands of HD channels, TV shows, series, movies all in one software. I searched and really did a very good choice. Don ‘t pay cable television fees for one year. You still pay them at once and watch tv free from your computer. Once you get use to life.
