Declare your love for Free Software!

on:

Why not make this February 14th a very special Valentine's Day? On Valentine's Day, FSFE calls on Free Software users everywhere to show their love for Free Software. It is the perfect occasion to show our love for Free Software and the possibility to use computers in freedom.

On its campaign page, FSFE suggests what users can do to show that they appreciate Free Software. Simply sending a developer a mail to say “Thank you”, taking a picture illustrating one's love for Free Software, declaring your love by microblog with the tag #ilovefs or donating to a Free Software project is all among the options.

Behind every Free Software initiative and organisation are real, passionate hard-working people. Just for one day, on Valentine's Day, FSFE invites all Free Software advocates around the world to send a thank you message to the people that work to make Free Software happen.

"Without Free Software, there would be no KDE. Free Software gives KDE life. KDE loves Free Software" declared Cornelius Schumacher, President of the KDE e.V. "No Free Culture project would be able to enjoy the full freedoms without the infrastructure created by Free Software projects[…]. To everyone engaged in supporting this infrastructure: thank you! We love you!", adds Jonas Öberg of the Society for Free Culture and Software (Föreningen fri kultur och programvara)
