S2M-03236 - Software Freedom Day
That the Parliament congratulates the organisers of Software Freedom Day
for working to highlight the Free and Open Source Software movement;
notes that a Software Freedom Day event will take place in Edinburgh on
Saturday 10 September 2023 at which members of the public will be able
to try free and open source software such as Ubuntu, OpenOffice and
Firefox for themselves; recognises the benefits which could exist for
the public sector in making greater use of such products, including
those produced by Scottish software developers; further recognises that
free and open source software is founded on principles with important
political concepts which have the potential for application to other
areas of society and the economy, and urges the Scottish Executive to
examine the scope for free and open source software throughout the
public sector.
