Open Source Project Lounge 2010

28.01.2010
 

Free software, with Linux being its most prominent example, thrives above all through the work of thousands of dedicated volunteer developers. Many of the projects that give Open Source its dynamism, creativity and diversity are developed by individuals in their free time as hobbyists or as side projects in small and middle sized companies, with no underlying commercial interests. Many times these projects lack an opportunity to tout their wares in the framework of a trade show. Not in CeBIT 2010 - visit the Open Source Project Lounge! CeBIT Open Source and the chosen projects thank the Mozilla Foundation, who supports this year's presentation with a generous sponsorship.
