Are Linux Users Just Penny Pinchers?

Filed under
Linux

tech-itch.com: I think it’s unfair to base an argument solely around price. Many a Linux user can afford the money to set up a Windows machine, I’m not sure on the stats but I’ll wager many a user will dual boot in one form or another.

FSFE: ‘German public sector a digital laggard’

With their lacklustre approach to free software, German public services remain behind other European member states, says the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). When asked, the current governing parties’ say they support free software, but their statements are contradicted by the lack of action, the advocacy group says. In early September, the FSFE published its analysis of the free software policies put forward by the main political parties on the ballot, in preparation for Germany’s parliamentary elections on 24 September.
