Software Freedom Day – Toledo

Software Freedom Day: September 15th, 2007 is a world wide day of
awareness for free and open source software. The Toledo celebration
of Software Freedom Day will be an interactive seminar open to the
general public at the West Toledo Branch Public Library from 12:00 to
3:00 PM.

Are you:
** Fed up with battling with viruses and spy-ware?
** Tired of paying high prices for software that doesn’t suit your needs?
Then Software Freedom Day is exactly what you need!

Presentations and demonstrations of free and open source software will
be given on a rotating basis throughout the afternoon, each lasting
about 10 minutes. Topics include: What is Free and Open Source
Software?, Multimedia Programs, Office Programs, Web-surfing Programs,
What is Linux?, and yes… Games!

During Software Freedom Day 2007, computer CD-ROMs with the latest
versions of the best free and open source software will be available
free of charge. These high-quality programs are designed for Microsoft
Windows users, are available completely free of charge, and contain
everything you need to get started. Why not give them a try?!?

Free and Open Source Software consists of programs written by computer
users, for computer users. Now you too can join the growing free
software movement and set your computer free!
