Why we celebrate Software Freedom Day?

In GBG, we our proud to have free software tools from Google such as:

Google Drive
Google Analytics
Google Calendar
Google Maps
and more...

Although not all of these tools are what we say 'totally free' especially if you exceed certain storage or want to avail of premium features, initially using them is free so as to appreciate their UI's and user-friendliness. And we know, as business people, we want to make sure that what we get should have the right features before we spend something for it.

In Software Freedom Day, we also appreciate other tools other than Google that have been created for free.

The liberation in the development of the free software programs has delineated the opportunity to create more available digital tools for more people to use on the Internet.

And with that, due to the the liberation of software usage for more and more people, the Internet has become more wider in size, digitally.
