Libre Software Movement: The Next Evolution of The IT Production

Abstract : Free (Libre) software diffusion represents one of the main evolutions of the Information Technology (IT) industry in recent years. It is not the least surprising either. In this article we first try to replace this diffusion in its historical context. We first show that the IT industry today presents the same characteristics as those viewed in former evolutions. And we present the arguments which explain why we think that libre may become a dominant organization for the computer industry.
