www.OpenResourceS.com officially launched on February 23rd

www.OpenResourceS.com has been officially launched on February 23rd. This is 
a web-site exclusively dedicated to Free Software and/or Open Source(TM).

Everything you can find here (articles, news, comments on software,
archived mailing lists, WWW-browsable source code, free software search
engines, free software catalogs etc.) can be freely re-distributed.

The site is not only focused on GNU/Linux but also on other OS's (NetBSD,
FreeBSD, etc), on applications (sendmail, apache, The Gimp, etc),
integrated environments (GNOME, KDE, etc), and in general on everything
strictly related with free software, paying special atention to free
documentation.

www.OpenResourceS.com is an ``open'' place: We encourage you to collaborate
in ways we have envisioned, or in other ways you could suggest to us. Use
the WWW forums or contact us through e-mail. We will pay attention to what
you have to say. Potential areas of collaboration include, but are not
limited to: getting your papers published, comment on other people
articles, get your company or services advertised, get in touch with people
on the free software community...
About the people behind www.OpenResourceS.com
---------------------------------------------

Open Resources is the company behind www.OpenResourceS.com.

Open Resources is a company aimed to provide services to the free software
community. Among its main goals are the promotion of free (open source)
software, the support of free software projects, and the provision of a
place where people interested in free software can interchange information.

In Open Resources we feel that we are entering a new age in free software.
Lots of new, interesting events have been happening during the last years.

Thousands of developers are building more and more free software every day.
Millions of users are learning to take advantage of free (libre)
applications. Companies are starting to turn towards all this movement. The
future is hard to predict, but for sure it is going to be more and more
exciting in this community.

Seeing all this movement, we want to try out a new model of business, based
in the provision of services to the free software community, both users and
developers. We know that the free software community needs places with good
and reliable information. For the moment, that neccesity has being covered
by volunteers, which are doing a very good job. But sometimes, volunteers
are not enough. In this community, volunteers are usually programmers, not
always interested in non-programming tasks. Therefore, there is a large gap
between what the community needs (and deserves) and what is available. We
feel that this gap can only be filled by a company that can allocate
resources and money to this task. We are sure that the community will
answer with great interest, helping the company to survive in the
marketplace.

Currently, our main source of income are banners and commisions on the sale
of items. However, we are also exploring other mechanisms to get the
financial resources that we need to maintain the company. Our bet is that
the free software community is already strong enough to support a site
which includes useful information, if this information is delivered in an
useful way.

Open Resources intends to become a one-stop site with valuable information.
We hope to provide quality about all kinds of free software, and only free
software.
