Dear Ruben Safir,

A company offers you a tool to make your life easier, but, when you
use it, you find out that the tool forces you to use it only in the
way the tool's manufacturer approves. Does this story ring a bell?
It's what millions of software users worldwide experience again and
again, day after day. It's also the story of Wendell the Elf and the
ShoeTool.

[**Watch the fairy tale of Wendell the Elf and the ShoeTool**][1] to
remind yourself why you shouldn't let your tools tell you how to use
them. Or, you can share the holiday fairy tale with your loved ones so
that they can learn not to let their tools control them. If we use
free software, we don't need anyone's permission to, for example,
modify our tools ourselves or install modifications shared by
others. We don't need permission to ask someone else to tailor our
tools to serve our wishes, exercise our creativity. The Free Software
Foundation (FSF) believes that everyone deserves full control over
their computers and phones, and we hope this video helps you explain
the importance of free software to your friends and family.

Dear Ruben Safir,

Watch the fairy tale of Wendell the Elf and the ShoeTool to

ShoeTool.

[**Watch the fairy tale of Wendell the Elf and the ShoeTool**][1] to
remind yourself why you shouldn't let your tools tell you how to use
them. Or, you can share the holiday fairy tale with your loved ones so
that they can learn not to let their tools control them. If we use
free software, we don't need anyone's permission to, for example,
modify our tools ourselves or install modifications shared by
others. We don't need permission to ask someone else to tailor our
tools to serve our wishes, exercise our creativity. The Free Software
Foundation (FSF) believes that everyone deserves full control over
their computers and phones, and we hope this video helps you explain
the importance of free software to your friends and family.

Dear Ruben Safir,






image showing the elf Wendell and a text saying ShoeTool a holiday tale featuring an elf whose shoemaking is stymied by proprietary software




A company offers you a tool to make your life easier, but, when you
use it, you find out that the tool forces you to use it only in the
way the tool's manufacturer approves. Does this story ring a bell?
It's what millions of software users worldwide experience again and
again, day after day. It's also the story of Wendell the Elf and the
ShoeTool.



Watch the fairy tale of Wendell the Elf and the ShoeTool to
remind yourself why you shouldn't let your tools tell you how to use
them. Or, you can share the holiday fairy tale with your loved ones so
that they can learn not to let their tools control them. If we use
free software, we don't need anyone's permission to, for example,
modify our tools ourselves or install modifications shared by
others. We don't need permission to ask someone else to tailor our
tools to serve our wishes, exercise our creativity. The Free Software

the importance of free software to your friends and family.
