Young students put into practice the four freedoms that Free Software grants them by modifying Tux Paint. First, they analyzed how the program works and discovered the mechanism that the program uses for the implementation of stamps. Then they learned how this particular characteristic of the program permitted the addition of stamps and how to do it. The whole process gave them an opportunity to learn that anyone, even non programmers or children, can actually influence and improve information technology when software freedom is granted.
