Software Freedom Day 2008 will be with us next Saturday the 20th of September. More than 500 teams in over 120 countries are holding events to mark the occasion.
Software Freedom Day is a worldwide event designed to showcase what Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) can offer to governments, educators, businesses, non-profit organisations and individuals. This year will be particularly interesting as the idea of Free Software celebrates it's 25th birthday!
Whilst I have already written about this year's SFD, many details have now emerged about Melbourne, Australia's event. The team organising the Melbourne, Australia event has been very busy putting together a terrific programme.
FOSS will be on show and you'll be able to use it and see it in action. You'll be able to pick up free CDs with various Free and Open Source Software for Windows users, Apple Mac users and Linux users.
Guest speakers will be presenting talks with Q&A sessions.
