<title>I love Free Software Day 2017</title>
<h1>I love Free Software Day 2017</h1>
It's time to say "thank you" on 14th of February, the "I love Free
Software" Day 2017. The Free Software Foundation Europe asks all Free
Software users to use the traditional day of love to think of the
hardworking people contributing to the Free Software we all depend on.
As every year there are many ways for people to participate in this
<p>In the Free Software society we exchange a lot of criticism. We
write bug reports, tell others how they can improve the software, ask
them for new features, and generally are not shy about criticising
others. There is nothing wrong about that. It helps us to constantly
improve. But sometimes we forget to show the hardworking people behind
the software our appreciation.</p>
<h2>Show your love for Free Software</h2>
<p>As the traditional day to show one's appreciation to people,
Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to thank the contributors of
the various Free Software you love: developers, translators, designers,
testers, or documentation writers, of huge softwares or smaller
projects. All of them work on the Free Software ecosystem which we can
enjoy every day.</p>
