How to make more users love free software: Double the love, double the freedom

Clarissa Borges won the first ever Award for Outstanding New Free Software Contributor. Clarissa is a software engineering student, and fell in love with free software while contributing to GNOME during her Outreachy internship project.

This talk is a follow-up to Clarissa’s presentation from 2020, and she elaborates and expands on the theme of how to get more computer users to choose free software over proprietary solutions by improving usability. The easier the software is to use, the more it will be adopted, and the more computer users find that they can depend on free software, the greater the demand will be for software that respects our right to use and share software as we see fit.
