"The SPTB office has been move to free software since early 2010. She made a conscious choice between migrating to free software or spending funds on expensive software licenses", said Muhammad Rohmadi, url-editor and system administrator for Serikat Perempuan Tanpa Batas [SPTB]. SPTB runs an estimated 100+% of their servers on GNU/Linux based DEBIAN. Non-government organisations (NGO) talk about freedom. Now, they are experiencing it in at least in one sphere of their activism--software. That's the message emerging from the global network SPTB, which recently shifted to free software in Indonesia. The reasons for the move were both philosophical and pragmatic, "Free software is a technically superior and morally correct technology", MR said. The cost of the migration was miniscule as well. They downloaded the software from the Internet, so it was "just the cost of blank CDs, less than 1 EUR".
