Standarde Deschise

Standardele deschise permit oamenilor să împartă toate tipurile de date liber şi cu o fidelitate perfectă. Ele permit blocarea şi alte bariere artificiale spre interoperabilitate şi promovează alegerea între vânzători şi soluţiile tehnologice. Obiectivul FSFE în ceea ce priveşte standardele deschise este de a asigura că oamenii pot migra într-un mod uşor spre software liber sau între soluţii libere.

Introducere

Relevanţa standardelor deschise este strâns legată de efectele de reţea, crescând dramatic. Recompensa pentru jocul cu sistemul pentru vendorii proprietari s-a incrementat, fiind costul utilizatorilor de software.

Guvernele, organizaţiile pentru binele public, incluzând grupuri care sunt procupate de libertate şi competiţie, precum şi drepturile consumatorului sunt în general proponenţi convinşi ai standardelor deschise. criticii tipici sunt vânzătorii de software, cei care reprezintă propriile interese. Unul dintre subiectele pe care criticii le conturează este conflictul între inovaţie şi standardizare.

Standardizarea limitează, fară dar şi poate, schimbările în baza technologică, incluzând inovaţia. Aceste limite sunt introduse pentru a permite subsecvent inovaţia din partea fiecăruia care are acces la standarde ci doar părţilor care controlează baza tehnologică.

Obiectivele FSFE includ libertatea tuturor pentru inovaţie şi competiţie. De aceea, FSFE este un suporter convins a Standardelor Deschise.

He asked the Parliament's IT administration to enable IMAP access on its mail servers to allow Free Software users to connect through standard protocols, and warned the Parliament to avoid lock-in as it progresses towards greater digitisation.
