About FREE SOFTWARE Magazine

FREE SOFTWARE magazine (``FSM'' for short) is a free (the free in ``freedom'') monthly periodical devoted to the global free software community. It is published in on-line electronic form on the world wide web ( http://www.rons.net.cn/english/FSM/online) and in printed paper copies by RON's Datacom Co., Ltd., with the direct support of Free Software Foundation, and FSF, China Academy. We invite you to read and contribute.

The basic goal of the FREE SOFTWARE magazine is to be the voice of the Free Software community, the voice of people concerned about their freedom, of developers creating a world of software that is fair to everyone. We value companies as developers and users of free software, but we value individuals above companies.

This brings the FREE SOFTWARE magazine closer to the spirit of the Free Software movement than any other magazine. Around the world there are dozens of magazines dedicated to the GNU/Linux operating system (although they often don't call it that). The FREE SOFTWARE magazine is not one of them. If a program is non-free but runs on GNU/Linux, that is not enough to gain a place for it in the FREE SOFTWARE magazine; when companies promote solutions that include Free Software and non-free software, the FREE SOFTWARE magazine will decline to participate. On the other hand, free software other than GNU/Linux is welcome. This is because we aim for something beyond the popularity of any specific free software package or system. We're aiming to spread freedom.
