Sembang dan Makan Tengah Hari Bersama Richard Stallman

Sebelum ceramah "Free Software & The Danger of Software Patent", saya dan 5 staf / ahli akademik (yang mungkin) dari Pusat Pengajian Sains Komputer berkesempatan untuk makan tengah hari bersama Richard M. Stallman.

Semasa makan tengah hari, Encik Stallman berkata untuk sebuah organisasi untuk migrasi ke perisian bukan propitari, mereka perlu membuang segala halangan yang menghalang pengimplementasian perisian bebas di dalam organisasi tersebut.

Tindakan ini boleh dimulakan dengan laman web organisasi itu contohnya laman web organisasi itu boleh dipaparkan di dalam semua pelayar dan tidak terhad kepada Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Pendidikan Awam di semua lapisan tidak sepatutnya mengajar penggunaan perisian atau sistem pengoperasian yang spesifik kepada satu syarikat OS propitari sahaja.

I and some 5 other staffs / academicians from School of Computer Science (and maybe elsewhere) had lunch with Richard Stallman.

During the lunch, Mr. Stallman said that for an organization to move to non proprietary software, they should delete all the obsticle to achieve the implementation of Free Software in the organisation.

That organisation should start it with the website of it's organisation. That is to say that the website should be able to view from all browsers, not limited to Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Public Education (primary, secondary, college or university) should not teach its students the mega-corporation's specific proprietary operating system or softwares.

The problem with this kind of software is that if the students want to use at home, the will ask their parents to spend hundreds to thousands of ringgits for each software (or resort to infringe copyrights law).

Public education institution should teach something that can be copy and distribute freely (like free/open source software) instead.

For GNU/Linux system, he recomends us to use Ututo or BLAG

At 3:00 pm, RMS will be having a seminar at the School of Computer Science, USM


(Mr. Stallman is a prominent IT figure, programmer, and the founder of the Free Software Movement)
