Freedom Matters


Freesoftware is a evolution that continued since 1980s, unlike other softwares which do revolution but collapse like dinosars.

Great Innovations can only be done with Liberty. In 498 AD, Indian mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata stated that "Sthanam sthanam dasa gunam" or place to place in ten times in value, which may be the origin of the modern decimal-based place value notation. This number '0' is used now in all over the world, including the computer you use. Innovations are done when ever they are necessary with liberty and they were shared with the spirit of further innovations in future.

The spirit of sharing the software code was prohibited since the beginning of 1990s and thus the begin of rising GNU (GNU Not Unix). Richard Stallman the Father of Freesoftware moment, you may see him in the above picture, he who opposess the open source agenda/concept. Let me give you what Freesoftware as per Stallman, which has become a defacto standard.

''Free software'' is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of ''free'' as in ''free speech'', not as in ''free beer''. Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:

The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

Inorder to stay economic, innovative with freedome, again history is repeating in computer industry from 1980s. Now it has crossed all levels where all just thought it would never. We now have Freesoftware deployed in all sectors you name it, be it large enterprise, small and medium business or home, they all now equipped with Freesoftware in their Desktop, Server, Network and Storage.

Do you know who made this possible ? you are wrong if you think it is because of a one or two mega corporations, it is none the other the Real Kings are The People and Richard Stallman Bettalian. They are fostering freesoftware with the purpose of keeping Freedom alive and save the mankind from unjust. This is how democracy is done in computer business. Hats off and Salute to all who have been doing it and you are all inspiration to us.
