It’s Software Freedom Day tomorrow!

It’s Software Freedom Day tomorrow and we want to help celebrate it in one of the ways we can.

To keep it simple I’ll present to you (as we always do) this month’s FlattrFOSS post.
So let’s kick off Software Freedom Day with giving you some new FOSS content to look at:

The Free Software community is not only composed of software projects, so this month I’ll include two projects whose goal is not to develop software (at least not directly).

Dizzy.js is a small javascript application to build nice animated presentations like those of Prezi.com. Instead of being Flash-based they combine SVG (for the content) and javascript (for the animations/transitions). JessyInk is similar but doesn’t use Flattr.  [Flattr link]

AdBlock for Google Chrome is the famous extension used to hide all the advertisements on the web. [Flattr link]

The Chakra Project is an Arch Linux derivative with focus on KDE. They are also experimenting with an “Half Rolling Release”, meaning that the core/base packages are only updated from time to time once they are know to be stable while the rest is frequently updated. [Flattr link]

TuxFamily is a non-profit organization providing (free) hosting services for Free Software projects. They provide web hosting, of course, (with PHP/MySQL/PostgreSQL to be able to run various web applications) but also VCS repositories, mailing lists, DNS and plain email accounts. [Flattr]

Pdfreaders.org isn’t a software but a campaign organized by the Free Software Foundation Europe to stop promoting Adobe’s PDF reader on government websites. Instead they are encouraging people to link to the website promoting open-source PDF readers. [Flattr]

Don’t forget that you can flattr the original post.
And did you know that Flattr got repositories on Github? Well, we do! And would love for you to take part of it.


This article is part of the Flattr FOSS project, which is a continuos cross posting.
