Software independence empowers users

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET: "Open-source software, although viewed by some as
risky and uncertain, does empower users in ways that
proprietary software does not. Sure, many needs can be
satisfied by good-quality, reasonably priced proprietary
software. But the absence of the right to access and
change source code and then redistribute those changes
is one of those things that some people are willing to fight
and make sacrifices for."
