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)
