Software Freedom Day Software Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
This year, SFD would be also organized by fedora volunteers in Belgaum, a city in Karnataka State of INDIA. During this day, a lot of activities would be held for Science students and also for general public. Our goal in this celebration is to educate the public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere!
