Next Saturday, September 16, the World Free Software Day is celebrated, an international initiative of an annual nature to spread the advantages of using free software, as well as to promote its use. Since 2006, the commemoration has been held on the third Saturday of September.
On the occasion of the occasion, Josep Gallart, expert in free software and member of the Ubuntu Community in the Catalan language, was interviewed by the Xarxa Punt TIC, at the Can Rius Space of the Caldes de Montbui Town Hall. "All software that can be shared, modified or distributed is free software," says Gallart. "Free software is not a matter of technology, it is a matter of freedom. What free software does is to attribute freedoms to a whole series of technological tools and guarantee that everyone can use them", explains Gallart. "The first operating systems were designed for experts, hackers or very sophisticated people. Ubuntu was born with the idea of making an operating system for human beings", states Gallart.
