New Delhi: On 26 August, a 12ft high trash can was installed in the historic Boston Common park. In it were mock-up boxes of Microsoft Corp.’s new operating system Windows 7. Organized by the Free Software Foundation, an international community of people who embrace free and open-source software, it was the beginning of a series of events commemorating what is called Software Freedom Day.
