FLORA Community Consulting specializes in Open Systems and Free Software. To learn why and how this can help your organization, please read the article "Open Systems, Free Software, and Why".
As with our regular rates, two groups of customers receive a different offer. The offer is a free consultation for those wishing to replace proprietary license-required software with free software like Linux and OpenBSD for your desktop or server, and OpenOffice, AbiWord, or Mozilla as applications on your desktop (including current proprietary desktops).
We will offer one day (7 hours) free consultation to any non-profit, NGO, or similar organization in Ottawa.
We will offer a 2 hour free consultation to any for-profit or government organization in Ottawa.
- "in Ottawa" means that the place where we meet is easily accessible via Public Transportation (OCTranspo).
- offers are subject to availability.
- Only serious requests, please. If it becomes obvious during the consultation that no interest in migrating to some Free Software tools existed, then regular rates will apply.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
Campaign has been advertised on other sites such as LinuxPR.

"harsh retribution" in the following paragraph:
The proprietary software industry entreats you to diligently track licenses, and offers harsh retribution against those who violate their licenses. Most GPL violations are settled amicably, and those which result from an accident are usually settled merely by removing the offending code from distribution.
