"Obviously open standards and open formats are a
necessary prerequisite, but they are not enough. Alone, they are
analogous to claiming that filling a library with books written in
your native language, so that everybody can read them, and then
charging a hefty entrance fee, promotes access of children to
knowledge. So free of charge tools to access and manipulate
information is also necessary. But why Free, as in freedom of
thought? Why Free Software and not just free of charge open source?
Or even free of charge proprietary software?"
