* "Stallman's Speech at National Institute of Technology, Trichy - India 02/17/2004 "Every school in India should be using free software. So as, to teach the children of India to grow up to be free software users. You see, teaching these children to become users of non-free software is guiding them on to the track that leads to the train wreck. So schools have to be teaching these children to grow up to be free software users. It should be no surprise, that Microsoft is offering gratis copies of Windows to schools in India. They are doing this for the same reason that tobacco companies used to offer gratis packs of cigarettes to children. They are trying to get children hooked. They are not doing this, to be helpful to anybody. They are doing this so as to have more of their grip around these children. So, they are asking the schools to become accessories, in maintaining their grip. And this should not be surprising. If you compare Microsoft with other forms of colonialism, you will see a lot of similarities. Because you see, non-free software is a system of colonialism. The developers... Instead of one country colonizing another, it is various companies trying to colonize the whole world. And they do this, using divide conquer tactics. Keeping the user divided and helpless. And if you think about it, that is what a non-free program does, it keeps the users divided and helpless. Divided, because you are forbidden to distribute copies to other people, forbidden to help your neighbor. And helpless, because you can't get the source code and change it."
