Boston MA, USA -- August 15, 2007 -- A one month, world-wide celebration of
GNOME's tenth anniversary begins this week, culminating in mid-September
with Software Freedom Day and the release of GNOME 2.20. During the
celebration month, GNOME contributors will create a scrapbook wiki recording
their ten year history, and a commemorative cookery book with "Open Source"
recipes contributed by GNOME community members from around the world.
Would you please call these recipes "free" or "freedom-respecting"?
To promote software freedom, it is vital to talk about "free
software", because the term "Open source" is most often used to lead
attention away from issues of freedom.
