Freedom and cooperation are at the core of the free software movement which began in its current incarnation by Richard Stallman when he founded the Free Software Foundation in 1983. Previous to that most software development had been free until the corporations who were paying for the research realized the commercial potential and began destructive and restrictive licensing practices.

Unable to live with the corporate model of software development and deployment, Stallman dedicated himself to promoting the type of cooperation and education that was a fundamental part of early computer programming.

Today with the development of the linux kernel and the proliferation of robust, stable distributions of gnu/linux (not to mention *BSD, Apache, perl, etc.) it's clear that free software is ready for the mainstream.

Xunilung's main goal is facilitate that process by educating people, schools, libraries, businesses and government agencies about free software.








The free software world is full of opinions and people willing to argue to the death in support of them. This is one of the things that makes it so amazing. We obviously have our own opinions as well, but the primary purpose of Xunilung is not to opine. We simply want to educate people. We want everyone on the planet who is making a decision about software to, at the very least, know what is available to them in terms of free software. We do not believe that free software is right for everyone in every situation and we don't want to lead people to believe things that aren't true.
