Description

"We are a small but enthusiastic community organised as a non-profit. Our main project, Get GNU Linux (GetGNULinux.org), is a high-quality multilingual website to promote free software amongst everyday users.

GetGNULinux is now translated in Spanish, French, Catalan, German and more languages are coming." (http://www.gnulinuxmatters.org/about/)

The association has the following objectives:


To make common computer users understand that freedom in software is as important as freedom in society, and therefore advocate the use of free software, in particular the GNU/Linux operating system.


Specifically:


1. To promote the use of the GNU/Linux operating system, because it is free software (other characteristics being secondary);

2. To provide simple and clear advice for newcomers to GNU/Linux, in all possible languages;

3. To discourage the use of non-free software by informing people about its restrictions and encouraging the use of free software.
