Our whole portal is all about Free (LIBRE) software, hardware and other things. We cannot talk about all these things without mentioning pioneers of Free Software Movement – “Free Software Foundation”.
There are many articles about this great organization in the net, you can start from reading Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Software_Foundation
Amazon came out with their newest line of Kindle ebook readers today, including the appropriately named “Kindle Fire”.
To quote their TV commercial: “The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.”
This device does not kindle that fire — it extinguishes it, with more of the same digital restrictions.
