We also have rules for official GNU and FSF IRC channels
All our pages are Best Viewed with Any Browser.
Just as we do not install proprietary software, we have a policy of not making links to pages that promote proprietary programs. We cannot make proprietary software disappear by not talking about it; information about proprietary software is widely available, and people who want it will get it somehow. But we prefer not to be participants in the process of advertising the proprietary software.
We also confine all links to text that is commercial in its tone to a few of our pages, where the topic makes such links appropriate. This is so we can avoid appearing to share the widespread assumption that money and business are the highest value in life.
Only free software is used on this computer. The web server is the Apache WWW-Server, which is distributed under the Apache license. To support this server, we also use other free software developed by GNU volunteers and we maintain a list of such software.
We currently host through Global NAP, who has graciously donated the bandwidth. The system was donated by HP. For detailed information, please read our Server Configuration.
The operating system is Debian GNU/Linux, which is one example of a GNU/Linux system. Debian GNU/Linux is not listed on our list of free GNU/Linux-distributions. The reason for this is that it provides non-free software through its repositories and includes non-free kernel drivers. We did not install any of that non-free software, so it is ok for us to run it. However, we cannot recommend its servers to the public. Other people might install the non-free software.
