Progress and social development with Free Software and Open Source

El software just like any other product of knowledge, should be used as far as possible, for the common benefit of all, that is, it must be shared To generate progress and development in and for Humanity.

The north, the ultimate end, to follow for all who develop and use, Science and Technology, Informatics and Computing, especially those that belong to techno-social movementsLike Free Software and Open Source Movement, it must be search the highest possible sum of well-being and happiness through the use of the contributed (Hardware, Software, Knowledge and Philosophy), at the lowest possible cost and time for the Company.

Introduction

Already in other previous publications, we have seen how beneficial it is for society as a whole, Free Software and Open Source, whether it is created, used or shared by, for and from people, communities, companies and governments. A good example of this statement is our previous post on GNU / Health, of which we review the following:

GNU HEALTH: Now with new patch 3.6.2 to start 2020

GNU HEALTH: Now with new patch 3.6.2 to start 2020

"In general terms, «GNU Health» It is an excellent «Sistema Libre de Gestión Hospitalaria y Salud». Therefore, it is intended for health professionals, health institutions and governments. In addition, this system has grown strongly in recent years and actively contributes to improving technology associated with the world of «Software Libre y de Código Abierto» and the ecosystem of «GNU/Linux»".

Another interesting previous article, in the same direction of the treated topic, was one called "Free Software as an effective State Public Policy", in which I know made clear, the following:

"… the use of «Software Libre» like a «Política Pública de Estado», It is not only a question of fashion or costs, but it is a fundamental element for the construction of the current emerging models of «Gobierno (Abierto y Electrónico)» in such a way that Citizens feel confident that they comply with reliable and safe use parameters, for all".

And finally, we can cite another 2 calls "Fourth Industrial Revolution: The role of Free Software in this new era" y "ALL: Speak openly Develop openly", where we see how Free and Open Source Software is being created, adopted and implemented from private companies, for the benefit of the progress and development technological, economic and social of the company and its own.

"In this Fourth Industrial Revolution, the existing Tools ecosystem (Applications, Systems and Platforms) of «Software Libre y Abierto» favors the adoption of said «nuevas tecnologías», allowing the Organizations may be more competitive and profitable in these times. Although also the human factor is key, especially at the level of training and mastery in these tools".

Free Software and Open Source for progress and social development

Now what, many Governments and community, public and private organizations are in important investment plans, research, development and implementation of free and open technologies (Hardware and Software), to offer or obtain processes and activities or goods and services, free and paid, it can be said, with clarity and precision that we are reaching a point of no return.

Un point of no return, like the one that once happened, when GNU / Linux began to settle in Supercomputers and Mobiles, and now for many it is unthinkable to imagine a Supercomputer without a Linux Distribution or a Mobile without Android.

Today, already many governments benefit and benefit to its citizens, the use and implementation of Free Software and Open Source applications and systems, oriented to face local challenges in favor of progress and national development.

Regardless, if it is used for guarantee or offer more secure, transparent or economic services, or by strengthen national technological independence, or simply by technological fashion, especially in the field of governments, the use of free and open processes and technologies, in areas such as health services, education, security, or the management of resources, data, information, communication, services, procedures, the image processing, among others, have the potential to promote economic and social development from many countries.

In summary, create, use, work, support on Free Software and Open Source, in the field of governments and community organizations, public or private, has as immediate benefit the increased impact of technological and economic resources, for the progress and development of the same and their Citizens and / or Users.
