News Item Activists trick-or-treat for free software at Windows 8 launch event
by Zak Rogoff published Oct 25, 2012 last modified Oct 30, 2012 04:17 PM
New York, New York, USA -- Thursday, October 25th, 2012 -- Today visitors to the primary Windows 8 launch event were greeted by an unexpected and uninvited visitor -- a gnu. Activists, one dressed as the free software movement's buffalo-like mascot, converged on Microsoft's event to distribute pamphlets about the hidden dangers of Microsoft's latest proprietary creation. The Halloween-themed action included plastic pumpkin buckets full of DVDs loaded with Trisquel, a free software distribution of the GNU/Linux operating system.

Upgrade from Windows 8
by Zak Rogoff published Oct 25, 2012 last modified Aug 21, 2014 04:42 PM
Microsoft has shelled out a mind-boggling estimated $1.8* billion to convince the public that it needs Windows 8. Why the record-breaking marketing deluge?

Blog Entry GNU MediaGoblin offers what you've been missing in an Internet media-sharing system
by Zak Rogoff published Oct 11, 2012 last modified Oct 11, 2012 06:31 PM
Today the Free Software Foundation is proud and excited to assist the GNU MediaGoblin project in its fundraising effort. MediaGoblin's volunteer team is working on a next-generation social web system where users will share their experiences through photos, videos and audio, all without running proprietary software. This project is ambitious, not just because it will support multiple media types, but also because it will use a special new network system called federation, which unifies a group of separately-owned servers into a single interface for the user. This means that anyone wishing to start a MediaGoblin server will be able to do so, optionally customizing the code to their needs and offering unique options to users.
