Software Freedom Day: Sept 10th 2005
SoftwareFreedomDay is an annual, global event intended to increase public awareness of Free and Open Source Software.
The first SFD was celebrated on August 28, 2004. Over 70 registered volunteer teams distributed several thousand "SFD Packs" in more than 20 countries around the world. Each SFD pack contained a copy of [http://theopencd.org/ TheOpenCD] and a SFD-branded version of [http://knoppix.org KNOPPIX].
We're currently planning for SFD '05, and Ubuntu Live discs will be ideal for public distribution. SFD '05 has the potential to make a huge impact on the public awareness of FOSS, and it will be a great opportunity to increase Ubuntu mindshare as well.
