Today, I had to explain to somebody that Mozilla Firefox is free*.
Let me elaborate slightly. Today, I had to explain to an IT professional that Mozilla Firefox is free.
Let me go a tiny bit further. Today, I had to explain to an IT professional with decades of experience, working for an very large government-funded body, that Mozilla Firefox is free. This isn’t some kid who got started on Windows XP. This is a man who remembers the first browser war. A man who works on UNIX systems in his day-to-day work, I gather. A man who should know better. Surely! Surely?
This is where your tax money is going. I think the UK FOSS advocacy scene just died a little inside.
* Free as in beer, for those that are counting.
