Join us in celebrating the FSF's thirty-fifth year of fighting for software freedom.
Online and via IRC in #fsf (on Freenode)Our work will not be finished until every computer user is able to do all of their digital tasks in complete freedom -- whether that's on a desktop, laptop, or the computer in your pocket.
