Software Freedom Day

September 17, 2011

SFD is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about
the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at
home, and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit
organization Software Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global
level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but
volunteer teams around the world organize the local SFD events to impact
their own communities.

Freedom to your community! Start with our StartGuide

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
