Blog Entry Troff document Take action for free JavaScript by Zak Rogoff — last modified Jun 26, 2013 01:22 PM
Choosing to run free software on your computer is a powerful statement. Unfortunately, regardless of what you have installed on your desktop or laptop, you are almost certainly running hundreds of nonfree programs as you surf the Web. Web sites often use programs written in JavaScript to expand the capabilities of HTML, adding menus, buttons, text editors, music players, and many other features.

Blog Entry RealAudio broadcast Is It Ever a Good Thing to Use a Nonfree Program? by Jeanne Rasata — last modified May 21, 2013 07:51 AM
It can be a good thing, "when the use of the nonfree software aims directly at putting an end to the use of that very same nonfree software."
