Abstract

Personal computers are giving way to netbooks and mobile devices. The browser has become the main UI for end-user applications. Enterprises are moving from data centres to software-as-a-service (SaaS) and hosted solutions. As computing ascends into the cloud, what will be the role of Free and Open Source software? And how will we preserve the hard-won advantages FLOSS provides? In this miniconf, we will discuss the theoretical and practical frameworks for freedom in the cloud; review the use of FLOSS and Open Content for consumer protection and to avoid business lock-in; and survey the Free Software that is providing an alternative to proprietary Web sites and cloud services.
