Why Free Software Is More Important Now Than Ever Before

http://www.wired.com

It is now 30 years since I launched the campaign for freedom in computing, that is, for software to be free or “libre” (we use that word to emphasize that we’re talking about freedom, not price).

Can we all agree with Linux Deepin’s way of innovation?

http://www.linuxbsdos.com
