:: THIS IS RASTA SOFTWARE
Jah Rastafari Livity bless our Freedom! This is free software, share it for the good of yourself and your people, respect others and let them express, be free and let others be free. Live long and prosper in Peace!
But, no Peace without Justice. This software is about Resistance inna babylon world which tries to control more and more the way we communicate and we share informations and knowledge. This software is for all those who cannot afford to have the latest expensive hardware to speak out their words of consciousness and good will. This software has a full range of applications for production and not only fruition of information, it’s a full multimedia studio, you don’t need to buy anything to express your voice. Freedom and sharing of knowledge are solid principles for evolution and that’s where this software comes from.
Inna babylon, money is the main requirement to make a voice possible to be heard by others. Capitalist and fundamentalist governments all around the world rule with huge TV monopolies spreading their propaganda, silencing all criticism.
This is a struggle for Redemption from existing operating systems which always require new expensive hardware for doing the same as ever: give us free players but make us pay for producing our own voices. And the one who protects you rips you off, as the Arabs say.
Dyne:bolic is a tool to produce and publish yourself, freely. There is nothing to consume here, there is all you need to create.
