INTRODUCTION

Software Freedom Day (SFD) is an annual worldwide celebration of the free/open-source software. SFD is a public education effort, not only to celebrate the alleged virtues of free and open source software, but also to encourage its use, to the benefit of the public.

In Nepal, Software Freedom Day is being celebrated since last two years. Every year we celebrate the day with several events like documentary show, distro demo, and many more..

FOSS Nepal Community and High Level Commission for Information Technology (HLCIT) are jointly taking lead in organizing the third Software Freedom Day Celebration in Nepal on September 15, 2007 with the theme Linux for Desktops. For the list of official sponsors for SFD, see here.
