The “freedom ladder” is a new method the FSF campaigns team has developed to help users get their first start in software freedom.
One problem with most guides introducing newcomers to GNU/Linux is that they stop them too soon on their “journey to freedom,” and end up suggesting that a partially nonfree setup is a desirable outcome. By contrast, our guide’s focus is to encourage users to not rest content with nonfree software, while at the same time recognizing that they have other pressures and obligations. We want to help them stay both motivated and determined in their gradual process to eliminate nonfree software from their lives.
Between July and August, the FSF campaigns team is hosting a series of discussions and brainstorming sessions to cover each step of a user's journey to freedom.
This meeting will cover the following steps on the freedom ladder:
- Learning how to find help
- Trying a free operating system
All times are given in EDT (UTC -4).
