„free software is the basis of all freedom in computing and all security in computing“
„if the users don’t control the program – the program controls the users – and somebody else is controlling the program – it gives the somebody-else power over the users – it is an injustice and non-free software should not exist – and typically this leads to malicious functionalities.
Many of the most widely-used non-free programs are malwares.“
… also free hardware … well hardware is software before it becomes hardware… so software-CAD-files can also be regarded as software.
„think of free speech not free beer“ 😀

„I use a Thinkpad X60 computer, in which the FSF installed a free initialization program (libreboot) and a free operating system (Trisquel GNU/Linux.) This is the first computer model ever to be sold commercially with a free initialization program and a free operating system, and thus the first computer product the FSF could endorse. (It was not sold that way by Lenovo, however.)“
but imagine this: if everyone would work for everyone for free – everything would literarily be free… yeah people would probably be wasteful with too much free beer… 😀
but the idea is to free the receipts and therefore free the cook from licence and surveillance bondage.
enable the individual – free the individual – working against the 1984 Orwell police state – not for it.
