With the advancement of technology we have today computerized systems in any company, from corporations to a simple newsstand, we found computer systems. Computers work is required to use this software and can be free or Owner. Some examples of proprietary software are Windows and Office, as examples of free software are the Linux and Open Office. A proprietary system can be very costly and limit the advancement possibilities of many companies because each computer with a proprietary software has to pay a license to use and generally have the operating system, office suite, antivirus, and all these programs that require a license.

Another problem is the proprietary software does not have the freedom to be modified, when buying a proprietary software actually is this licensing the use and not the full right to use and modification. Already free software is flexible and can be adapted to the reality of each company, improving performance, security, reliability and economy.

According to Silveira (2009, p.5), "The free software movement is a movement by sharing technological knowledge. Began in the 1980s and spread throughout the planet taken by the webs of the worldwide network of computers ". Free Software aims the freedom and knowledge sharing, and today the main means of distribution is the internet.
