This quote, penned by Nathaniel Branden, seems fitting nowhere moreso than with the freewheeling computing industry. In the space of just a few decades, lives the world over have been changed by computing technology. We, the people behind the Free Software movement, are seeking to continue this trend by truly opening up software to everyone - not just the few people working for the companies that write it - but everyone.
As part of this goal, this book and CD contain a treasure chest of Free Software. Over one thousand packages, including things such as the worlds most popular web server, can be found here. You can use this software for everything from graphic design to SQL databases.
