Your government doing advertisement for non-free software. Public administrations buying non-free software without a public tender. Children in school who just learn to use proprietary software. Since 2001 Free Software Foundation Europe is working for Free Software in the political sphere. This track will offer an insight into present practices in the public administration throughout the world, potentials risks for the Free Software community, and what each one of us can do to increase software freedom.
