Show your love for Free Software

On 14th February, the Free Software Foundation Europe asks all Free Software users to think about the dedicated hard-working people in the Free Software community and to show them their appreciation like last year.

"Every day, we use Free Software and often take it for granted. We write bug reports, tell others how they should improve their software, or ask them for new features. Often we are not shy about criticising. So, to let the people in Free Software receive a positive feedback once a year, there is the 'I love Free Software day'." says FSFE's vice president Matthias Kirschner, who initiated the #ilovefs campaign in 2010.

For the "I love Free Software Day" the FSFE has several suggestions how to show your love creatively to the people behind Free Software, including:

"Free Software gains its strenghts by the community and the ability to work together and join forces." says Matthias Kirschner. "We should not underestimate the power of a simple "thank you" for people who are easing our everyday work. So say thank you on 14th February!"
