Hello, free software community. This is a new libre software oriented computer shop opened in India by @abhas. You can think it is similar to ThinkPenguin and Technoethical in US and Europe but in India instead. Currently, it ships only in India but you can see everything about it is awesome. I think you will be interested.

I forgot to mention that the Libre Tech Shop is 100% LibreJs compliant.

That was my first criteria for choosing an e-commerce framework. The choice Wordpress + Woocommerce enabled me to add LibreJs headers to all the javascript code (all of which was free/libre software already!).

Tooter.in is just copying
Software and shamelessly calling it 'Made in '. It is made by people from around the world and shared freely.

Either they did not write even a single line or they are violating the license, which requires them to publish their changes. They are linking to original code in project repos (which is a fork of ).

Even the terms of service is just copied with references to first amendment in the USA.

ഡെബിയനുൾപ്പെടെ എല്ലാ സ്വതന്ത്ര സോഫ്റ്റ്‌വെയറും കാടും കടലും ശുദ്ധവായുവും പോലെ എല്ലാ മനുഷ്യരുടേയും പൊതുവായ സ്വത്താണു്.

നമ്മൾ ഇത് മെച്ചപ്പെടുത്തുമ്പോൾ എല്ലാവർക്കും ഉപകാരപ്പെടും. ---പൈററ്റ് പ്രവീൺ

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!

It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.

No change to you as a Plausible subscriber or self-hoster.


PeerTube needs about 13k more to reach that €60,000 / Live streaming feature!

A free as in freedom decentralized video sharing and soon possibly even streaming platform.

The fine developers of Framasoft have a roadmap for version 3.0 of PeerTube.

It includes all the things one needs to ditch Youtube!

Read about it via link & please support if able. We are almost there.

"Starting this Thanksgiving I am going to write a complete Unix-compatible software system called GNU (for Gnu's Not Unix), and give it away free to everyone who can use it." September 27, 1983 - Richard Stallman. gnu.org/gnu/initial-announceme

Happy birthday to GNU \o/

The world celebrates Software Freedom Day today with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and it is in the same spirit and excitement that we announce today the Free Software Camp.


Thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes to make this possible.

I made a thing! 🎉

It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

We live in times where the distributions costs are hampering the adoption of higher-quality (which could mean security, privacy, ethics, local etc) products. I am hoping that this extension can eventually be managed by orgs like IFF, EFF or FSF.

A mentoring programme created with the intention of bringing more people to Free Software with strong focus on philosophy. More at camp.fsf.org.in/

"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say."
— Edward Snowden

Similarly, the argument that you don't care about software freedom because you don't know coding can be considered as same. It's like arguing that you don't care about the food you eat because you don't know cooking!

#FreeSoftware #SoftwareFreedom

Today, at DeepRoot GNU/Linux, we complete 20 years of building, selling, supporting and advocating #FreeSoftware and #GNU/#Linux.

I'm looking forward to using this occasion to discuss software freedom, self-hosting, building / running a free software business and so much more.
