Free Software is the foundation for a lot of what we are doing. It provides the base, on which our community can operate with autonomy and passion. Especially in times when landscapes are shifting it's reassuring to know that the freedoms of Free Software guarantee us and the rest of the world that we can use and develop our software following our purpose and to the benefit of the millions of users out there.
For me the Free Software community always has been a welcoming, rewarding, and enriching place. I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all the users and developers, students and professionals, volunteers and commercial contributors, who spend their time and passion on making the world a better place through software.
I love Free Software!
