"Freedom is important to me because I get the benefits of being able
to change the software and distribute the improvements because there
are many brilliant programmers out there in my community who improves
the software from time to time and are happy to see the members of
this community using their improvements. I get to use all new
functionalities, less bugs and new contents like themes even though I
cannot code a single line"
"Value your freedom, or you will lose it, teaches history.
