(Redirected to Open source advocacy article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Open-source advocacy is the practice of attempting to increase the awareness and improve the perception of open-source software. In some cases, this may be in opposition to proprietary software.

Leading open-source advocates include Brian Behlendorf, Tim O'Reilly, Eric Raymond, Linus Torvalds, Mitch Kapor and Paul Vixie. Others that advocate the related free software movement include Richard Stallman, Alan Cox, Jimmy Wales and Eben Moglen. Bruce Perens is a prominent figure who works to promote both terms.

There are even broadcast and pod cast radio shows whose sole subject is open source advocacy. Gutsy geeks and Open Source (radio show) are but two examples.
