Genesis

RMS in Science CityRichard Matthew Stallman giving speech at Science City Seminar at IOTA on December 2008. The day when people and general students of West Bengal for the first time came into close contact of the great leader of the Free Software Movement. His mesmerizing personality overtook the control for the day. He interrupted in every attempt when other speakers tried to call GNU OS as Linux. He patiently answered every question thrown at him, He made everybody feel the need for adopting libre soft. He inspired.

Passion4Freedom till that date was just another Free Software User Group. A few months old but high on moral, freedom lover hactivist group. That day it transformed into a larger organization. In that seminar we met several other like minded people. Some journalists, some hobbyists, some professors and some peer groups. We came together. Became stronger. Took the oath of making it possible. We are India’s first Freedom in Technology Supporter and Developer Network (FTSDN). No FOSS user group, no hobby culture to let in any unprofessional behavior. Currently with 141 strong supporters spread all across India and abroad we are determined to reach our goal. Our goal is not unrealistic but very simple. We want to make the voice of freedom in technology to be audible to everybody in this world. All that is needed to be done to achieve that goal is what we do. This website serves as the central point for all the widespread activity. For example here you can find all that important contacts in your region telling you about either us or free technology movement at large. We guide you and update you on your way to become one of us – The Hackers.


Dont worry, we are not those evil hackers who will hack people’s home. We are people who love to get into the system, understand it and make it better to suit our needs. We encourage make GNU Linux more friendly to you by hacking every small bit of it. We try to convince you to join our world where you are free to take the technology from us and return us after making your improvisations. We are a vibrant community, enjoy being with us.
