“Like free software?
Come to the Software Freedom Day and experience software on steroids. ”
Not only is the software to be featured free, most of it is Open Source, which means that it is developed by a community for the community. Open source software developers care about your freedom. 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? With Open Source, it’s not just encouraged, it’s expected.

Sofware Freedom Day 2012
On Saturday the 15th of September 2012, thousands of people around the world will be celebrating Software Freedom Day.
Zimbabweans are also part of that number. There are two events scheduled to celebrate SFD, one in Harare and the other in Bulawayo.
The events are meant to educate the public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) in education, in government, at home, and in business — in short, everywhere.

After a frustrating search that didn’t bear any results, I made a decision
to move to another programming language. What was I searching for? Tips on how to develop
apps for mobile devices. I must admit, I was pidgeon holed in one programming language(Visual Basic).

It was after a lot of unfruitful searches that I figured out that VB was not the best option for mobile development.
A friend of mine from college always talked about linux. He swears by it. Everytime he talked about it, i always kept thinking,
But why would anyone want to change from Windows, why bother?
That is what I always asked myself, so I had a long talk with him and had him explain to me the benefits of switching OSes…..He didn’t do a really good job of it, except tell me how cool it would be to use the command line for everything and not use point and click, like most of us are used to doing. To all Linux geeks out there, here’s a tip, when introducing a noob to linux, you might not want to scare them with command line(or terminal as it should rightfully be called) jargon, at least not until they understand a little.
I wasn’t dissuaded however, I still wanted to know more…..for me, the reason was just for the fun of it. I’m an avid learner so it was a challenge more or less.
