Free software was first noticed in university campuses in Taiwan two decades ago when the GNU utilities started to spread out on the Unix-like workstations, and the community awareness of free software was gradually formed in early 1990s. The creation of the Chinese Linux Extension (CLE) project in 1997 is the most referenced Linux environment in Taiwan, and the industries start catching up OSS activities since 1998. As a long-time contributor of various open source project, I would like to share my understanding about Taiwanese OSS development in historical perspective.
