Free software gives you back control over your computer

by sdubois Contributions Published on Jun 29, 2010 05:17 PM
As our society grows more dependent on computers, the software we run is of critical importance to securing the future of a free society. Free software is about having control over the technology we use in our homes, schools and businesses, where computers work for our individual and communal benefit, not for proprietary software companies or governments who might seek to restrict and monitor us.
Free software gives you back control over your computer

Proprietary software takes away your ability to control your computing. In order to ensure our freedom in the digital age, we must reject proprietary software and instead choose free software.

In addition to our list of free GNU/Linux distributions, you can also install free software for Windows and Mac OS X.
