About us

The LibrePlanet Illinois Team is a group of hackers, volunteers, and activists organized around furthering the ideals of free software and related issues concerning digital rights as necessary means for a free society. We operate in accordance with the LibrePlanet Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.

This group is working towards a free society through free software, but we are not just a GNU/Linux User Group. We may promote any software that respects the freedom of its users. We are a team with a mission! We recognize that some people choose to make compromises, temporary or otherwise, with proprietary software, and some who may not always say GNU/Linux, or "free software" instead of "open source", and we welcome those people to join us and discuss their thoughts, but as a LibrePlanet team, we frame terms accordingly. We are open to people of all levels of interest in free software and welcome new participants. We are all united in the fight for software freedom as an important and necessary means for the prospect of a free society.
