The BOP Linux User Group is running Software Freedom Day 2011 on Sunday September 18th 2011. This will be Tauranga's second annual Software Freedom Day, as part of a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (www.softwarefreedomday.org.)

The open day will promote free software and free software concepts to home, education, business and government computer users.

Supported by TechnologyWise, the BOP Linux User Group volunteers will show visitors the extent of Open Source software and its capabilities. A wide range of software will be demonstrated including areas such as audio-visual, astronomy, business, design, educational, games, genealogy, libraries, music, and programming.

The vision of Software Freedom Day is shared by TechnologyWise: "... to empower all people to freely connect, create and share in a digital world that is participatory, transparent, and sustainable".

The open day is free and everyone is welcome. It runs from 11-3pm on Sunday 18 September at St Mary's Catholic School, 11 Thirteenth Ave, Tauranga.
