Franco is enemy of Free Software

Posted by: Administrator on January 26, 2007 01:27 AM
The only thing I can see about Franco's word is: he don't know what he is speaking about or he is just trying to make FUD against free software.

His words talks about usual problems, and mixed Open and closed source software that goes all around the world.

There was a lot of hype and marketing for Open Source in Brazil, of course. This is the good thing. Some of the marketing is getting down now, but what we have is that Open Source is so strong tied to all IT infrastructure that we can´t go without it so easy.

Yes. I'm Brazilian and I know about many projects running over Python and Java. We have a lot to go, many battles to win, but I know that some proprietary software companies are really worried about what we have here.

If Free Software get more into Brazilian's mind we can became ever a stronger example of what Freedom can do for a country.
