FOSS

The battle over technology has just begun. We can either create a world where knowledge is free, or continue our freedom one step at a time. Being a Software Engineer by training, and a writer at will, I believe FOSS is more than just a software development methodology; it will have implication on other spheres of human development too. The debates over Net Neutrality, Copyleft, are just parts of the larger issue. Let’s make our digital world free.

As Richard Stallman says- ‘Free software is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, we 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, and our collective knowledge as whole.’ You may refer to the following links to know more about the FOSS movement-
