Debian, free software, and critical consumption

As mentioned in my last report, about a month ago I've been interviewed (in Italian) for la Repubblica, a major general-interest Italian newspaper.

Matteo Cortese has kindly contributed an English translation of the interview (thanks!), which I've just made available.

If you're a Free Software enthusiast, there is probably nothing new in there for you. But for a different public the story is quite another. In many countries it is still very difficult to find room on general-interest newspapers to explain why Free Software matter to people, and how not caring about it will lead consumers to progressively lose their rights while software become more and more common in the stuff they buy. So many thanks to journalist like Giulia Belardelli who show a genuine interest in these topics and try to bring them "to the masses".

Great work getting the term Free Software (which I hope is a little less confusing in Italian than English) into a general newspaper. Hopefully some who read it will start to understand why it is important.
