Why not make this February 14th a very special Valentine's Day? On
Valentine's Day, FSFE calls on Free Software users everywhere to show
their love for Free Software[1] . It is the perfect occasion to show our
love for Free Software and the possibility to use computers in freedom.

On its campaign page[2] , FSFE suggests what users can do to show that
they appreciate Free Software. Simply sending a developer a mail to say
“Thank you”, taking a picture illustrating one's love for Free
Software, declaring your love by microblog[3] with the tag #ilovefs or
donating to a Free Software project[4] is all among the options.

Behind every Free Software initiative and organisation are real,
passionate hard-working people. Just for one day, on Valentine's Day, FSFE
invites all Free Software advocates around the world to send a thank you
message to the people that work to make Free Software happen.

"Without Free Software, there would be no KDE. Free Software gives KDE
life. KDE loves Free Software" declared Cornelius Schumacher, President of
the KDE e.V. "No Free Culture project would be able to enjoy the full
freedoms without the infrastructure created by Free Software
projects[…]. To everyone engaged in supporting this infrastructure:
thank you! We love you!", adds Jonas Öberg of the Society for Free
Culture and Software (Föreningen fri kultur och programvara)[5]
