Okay_Computer is a workshop where you can discover a type of computer software that is… different. The software is free: free as in freedom, not free as in free beer (though it is often that too in reality).


If you have made ideological decisions in other areas of your life, you may feel unsure about your computer: is it okay? You may wonder about the ideologies, philosophies, companies and laws which govern the that software you use. The Okay_Computer workshop is designed to help everyday computer users understand Free Software so that they can make more informed choices, and if they wish, apply philosophical ideals to their computer. These ideals can be applied by choosing reliable, practical and attractive alternatives to software like Windows.
