Linux Information- "Linux for everyone!"

Dedicated to the Open Software in the Home, Office and Enterprise, this page is about using Free and Open Software in the home and office.

Open Source/Software refers to the fact that the source code of Free/Open Software is open to and for the world to take, to modify and to reuse, more specifically I bring you information about the application of open software in your home business or enterprise. Open-source software is an idea whose time has finally come, for twenty years it has been building momentum in the technical cultures that built the Internet and the World Wide Web, now it's breaking out into the commercial world, and that's changing all the rules. Are you ready?

The moral values of Free Software are best summarized in the 'Hackers' Ethic: from a book called Hackers, Heros of the Computer Revolution.

  • Always yield the Hands-On Imperative! Access to computers - and anything else which might teach you about the way the world works - should be unlimited and total.
  • All information should be free.
  • Mistrust Authority - Promote Decentralization.
  • Hackers should be judged by their hacking, not bogus criteria such as degrees, age, race, or position.
  • You can create art and beauty on a computer.
  • Computers can change your life for the better. (Levy, 1984)
