Freedom? You ask. Yes I said it, they care about your freedom. These developers give you the freedom to use,copy, distribute and even modify the software to suit your needs. Doesn’t that sound cool?

On Saturday the 15th of September 2012, thousands of people around the world will be celebrating Software Freedom Day.
