Description
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The famous digital divide is getting wider. A two-part documentary, "The Code
Breakers," to be aired on BBC World starting 10 May 2006 examines whether free/
open source software (FOSS) might be the bridge? FOSS contains 'source code'
that can be used, copied, studied, modified and redistributed without
restriction. It has been around for over 20 years but most PC owners are not
aware that the Internet search engines and many computer applications run on
FOSS. "It's not that FOSS has had a bad press, it has had no press because
there is no company that 'owns' it," says executive producer Robert Lamb. "But
we found that in the computer industry and among the afficionados, it is well
known and its virtues well understood."

I'm not familiar with many of them but, looking at the titles, I don't think mixing 'pirates' with 'FOSS' is a great idea...

Cheers.
