Les consommateurs italiens ne devraient pas avoir à payer pour un logiciel qu'ils ne veulent pas – Lettre aux autorités de régulation

17 October 2014:

La FSFE et l’association italienne de consommateurs ADUC, avec le groupe italien ILS, demandent aux organismes de régulation à prendre des mesures concrètes pour protéger les Italiens contre l’obligation de payer pour des logiciels qu’ils ne veulent pas ou n’ont pas besoin. La Haute Cour de l’Italie a rendu une décision en Septembre que les fournisseurs informatiques doivent rembourser les consommateurs pour le prix des logiciels payants indésirables qui sont livrés pré-installés sur les PC et ordinateurs portables. Aujourd’hui, la FSFE, l’ADUC et l’ILS ont envoyé une lettre aux autorités italiennes de la concurrence, leur demandant de s’assurer que les fournisseurs se conforment à la décision de la Haute Cour, et de respecter les droits de leurs consommateurs.

Munich sticks with Free Software

16 October 2014:

On Tuesday, Munich's first mayor finally reacted to an inquiry by the Green Party (in German) related to rumours regarding a possible switch back to a Windows-based desktop environment. The answer to the inquiry shows that there is no factual basis for the claims made by first mayor and second mayor. An evaluation of the IT infrastructure and -processes is underway. FSFE calls on the city council to include vendor independence as well as interoperability as factors in the investigation, since they were central reasons for Munich to switch to Free Software in the first place.

[Blog] Report from our German speaking team meeting 2014

11 July 2014:

From 13 – 15 June 2014 FSFE had its German speaking team meeting in the Linuxhotel in Essen. The participants had some problems to travel there because of the chaos resulting from a heavy thunderstorm in the region. A lot of train lines where not functional, and the situation on the streets was also chaotic. But just because no ICE trains stop in Essen does not mean we will not continue our work for Free Software. In the end we were able to bring all volunteers to the Linuxhotel to plan further activities and discuss current issues.
