The real value of FOSS to business â A personal example

,----[ Quote ]
| The bottom line is that FLOSS is not about 
| cheap software. Itâs about control. If you 
| have the source code then you are in 
| control of the situation, although good 
| support from the vendor is always welcomed. 
| Cheap price comes with the openest/freedom, 
| since you are not restricted to pay support 
| to a particular vendor if you are not happy 
| with him.


One neighborhood changing the world part one

| Why would people be so giving? The 
| foundation of open source is belonging. 
| Everyone to the hardest working contributor 
| to the new user is equally entitled to 
| their license. You do not need to pay 
| thousands of dollars, go to a certain 
| school, work for the right employer, or 
| live in the right country. Open source is a 
| free gift to all. Like grace, those who 
| receive it want to share it. We stand 
| together as neighbors living everywhere 
| changing the world where we live.


One neighborhood changing the world part two

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source is not just a methodology for 
| releasing software for people like Helios 
| and I. It is a way of life that we pay for 
| by giving back in abundance with the 
| resources we have to our avail. So, when 
| Helios posted that the founder of the 
| website that him understand Linux was 
| dying, I was happy to help again. This way 
| the website: brunolinux.com and the âBruno 
| Knaapen Technology Learning Centerâ will 
| leave a legacy.



Opinion: GPL delivers clarity and freedom to business

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gnu General Public Licence (GPL) has been around in one form or another
| since the Gnu manifesto published by Richard Stallman in 1985.
| The free software movement founded at that time has not simply created the
| most successful copyright licence ever, it has acted as a guide to other,
| similar movements, including open data, open government and open information
| systems, such as Wikipedia. It is the same principles that Vint Cerf applied
| in 1983 when he âinventedâ the internet.


That Old GNU Thing: Licensing

,----[ Quote ]
| It's plain, though, that open licenses are both thriving and spreading, and
| this report offers a useful snapshot of just far we have come from the
| trailblazing GNU GPL.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
