Content/aim
Free and open source software demonstrate every day the strength and the
efficiency of the model of cooperative development - notions of exchange,
knowledge sharing, democracy, belong to the green fields where our
representatives can make a difference - and numerous experiences such as
the switch of Munich to Linux have proven so. This is also close to our
work against genetic engineering and patents on life. 
At each power level the Greens favor the modernization of computer systems
taking in account criteria such as interoperability, accessibility,
democracy .... that Free Software is better able to guarantee than
proprietary software. Green representatives are active in proposing draft
laws to migrate public administrations to free software. The victory
against software patents in European Parliament, will also be discussed in
order to continue the work at the level of the European Council via the
Member States. This discussion will take place in light of the proposal
for resolution on the "Information ecology" that is tabled to the plenary
meeting of the congress. 

In the corridor we will install a stand where you can acess internet with
free software
