Abstract

Free Software is sometimes considered solely a technical option, but that is a quite limited
point of view: we suggest, indeed, that Free Software is not merely a technical option, but it
is, in fact a different working paradigm for the software development community and a
different model for acquiring (and sharing) resources in the Information Society. This paper
will discuss this working paradigm and analyse the market and non-market relations that are
implied by it.
