Example text

Whereas once all hackers (that is, programmers) had shared ideas and program code, the trend in the 1980s was toward proprietary, nonshared code, as well as legal nondisclosure contracts, which forced programmers to keep secrets from one another. “I cannot in good conscience sign a nondisclosure agreement or a software license agreement,” wrote Stallman in his announcement of GNU in 1984. ” Stallman is a very talented programmer and is considered a genius by many observers. He singlehandedly created many essential programming tools in his initial efforts to get GNU off the ground.

Not only that, but if you want any new software, it will also usually be free of charge (and normally just a download away). Is this starting to sound attractive yet? The software is also released under a license that indicates you can share it with anybody you want. Suppose that you find a really great image editor. You mention it to a friend, and he asks for a copy. Under Windows, copying the program will probably be strictly illegal—to do so turns you into a software pirate! Unless that image editor is freeware, your friend will need to buy the software himself.

Ubuntu works straight out of the box. As soon as it’s installed, you should be ready to start using it without any further work. In addition, tasks such as updating your software are as easy—and in most cases easier—under Ubuntu as they are under Windows. Above all, however, Ubuntu is designed to be shared. You can take the DVD-ROM included with this book and install Ubuntu on as many computers as you want. You can also copy it as many times as you want and give those copies to your friends. We’re serious!
