My yearly message to the community.
Seasons Greetings everyone :)
I'm sure many of you are preparing for the busiest time of the year in regards to your work, study, family and friends. This time of the year for me, presents an opportunity to reflect on what each of us have been involved in regarding our day to day lives. It's a time to celebrate our victories, and learn from our defeats. For me personally, at the forefront of my mind, is gratitude.
I love linux, free software and the open source community.
We have so much to be proud of. Linux runs on most of the worlds web servers, mobile phones and tablets, it's in everyday appliances and electronics and of course we run it on our computers. Free software is everywhere. This year, as in every year before, I have been driven to spread the word about this free computing experience. To inform others that free software provides true freedom, not free as in free beer, but free as in knowing that the programs you run on your computer, have been made by people who genuinely want to give something back to the world they live in.
Free software is everywhere, and with it, goes freedom.
Community. It's all about Community. Free software encourages co-operation. We learn that by co-operating and helping others, we're actually helping ourselves. Through this, we are making the world better. This is an empowering experience. Free software for me is less about code and programming and more about a philosophy. A philosophy that sharing is good. It's a reminder of traditional values. If you want to make the world a better place, share this philosophy with people you know, let your enthusiasm impact on them. People know instinctively when you are doing good things.
Thank you to everyone for participating in this experience. I've had multiple, first hand experiences in changing peoples perception on how they approach their day to day computing. In the season of giving, few things are as emotionally rewarding as giving someone freedom.
From me to you, thank you for your feedback, your contribution, your help and your support.
