Do you value "Free" or "Freedom"?

Yesterday, I helped 2 people start on their road to Freedom. It took me all day. He is a power user and some programs like Outlook lock your information in so that exporting contacts and other info can become strenuous. Sure he needed some proprietary software, but the road to justice is long.
Today RIM went down 25% and I could help but think how open software now has the green light thanks to Google's Android. A smart phone is only as good as it's software and most application developers are switching from the iphone and RIM to the Android because of how bad Apple is treating them. Will we soon see a day when the Lords of software become extinct? The next step is to remove proprietary codecs on websites so everyone can enjoy the websites. Come on let Firefox browsers access your info.

Dell Mini 9 / Open Source Computing

I just ordered 3 Dell Inspiron Mini 9 computers. If you want one,let me know or a least stop over and see what all the fuss is about. It is like being green. The more you use open source software the better you make software for everyone. Not everyone subscribes to this rss feed so it might take awhile for people to stumble upon it.
I put the 8 gig harddrive in as well as the 1 gig memory so it cost me the same as the Windows XP mini, but I don't have to contend with all the pre-installed crapware, and trying to keep Microsoft's software running via virus removal software.

Open Wifi enables peoples to colaberate more!

I sign up Marshall yesterday to see I could make him the 1 millionth member, but we are already 80,000 over. I am proud to be a member of this wonderful Community whereby each individual makes a small contribution to create a huge merit for all participating members. We need this, because my new Rogers Iphone only downloads via wifi. Ask me how you can join fon.

Open Source enables peoples to colaberate more!

How did google release such a good browser the first time? It is because Chrome is built using the open source principles ie. it used Webkit as it's rendering engine and produced V8 (improved javascript) for others to enjoy. We all are on this earth to help each other. Go ahead do a good deed for someone today.
