I consumatori italiani non devono pagare per software che non vogliono. - Lettera all'AGCM

17 October 2014:

La FSFE e l'associazione per la protezione dei consumatori ADUC, assieme con l'Italian Linux Society, chiedono al poteri regolamentari di intraprendere passi concreti al fine di proteggere gli italiani dall'essere forzati a pagare software che non vogliono o di cui non hanno bisogno. La corte di Cassazione ha deciso in settembre che i venditori di computer devono rimborsare i clienti del prezzo pagato per software non libero e non voluto che venga preinstallato su PC fissi e portatili. Oggi, FSFE, ADUC e ILS hanno mandato una lettera all'Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato (AGCM), chiedendo che i rivenditori di computer rispettino la decisione della Suprema Corte e rispettino i diritti dei cittadini.

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.
