ETIQUETAS: Hot news | Open source | Tips

Have you bought all your Chistmas gifts? If you're planning to give electronics, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) asks us to give some thought before buying something that could take more than it gives, since it requires, for example, to pay some license in order to use it.

They also advice us to avoid giving products with harsh rules about copying and sharing, or those which perform remote deletion of files without asking users.

FSF has drafted the traditional guide to help us choosing gifts that respect recipients’ rights and freedom, promoting ethical tech; they have even organized events to spread the word and help understand the benefits of free technology.
