September 20: Mumbai: Software Freedom DayHappy Software Freedom Day
I hope we all are concerned about softwares we use. As, Karmayog making people aware about the social issues. The Free Software Community is concerned about how people use Software and making people aware about the Free Software. Lot of work is going on, making people participate and use Free Software.
As lot of people get confused with the word FREE and relate the term with the cost. Which is not the case otherwise. The word FREE means Freedom. To know whether the software you use is Free (Freedom) Software or non-Free (Freedom) Software. You just need to check the software license. If the software you use is under GNU General Public License its Free (Freedom) Software, indeed if its not under GNU GPL. And carry its own software license then it should be approved by Free Software Foundation the community behind Free Software Movement.
