Richard Stallman will speak about the goals and philosophy of
Software Movement, and the status and history
of the GNU operating
which in combination with the
kernel Linux is now used by tens of
of users world-wide.
Richard Stallman launched the development of the GNU operating system
(see www.gnu.org) in 1984. GNU is free software: everyone has the
freedom to copy it and redistribute it, as well as to make changes
either large or small. The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU
operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of
computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace Hopper Award, a
MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation's
Pioneer award, and the the Takeda Award for Social/Economic
Betterment, as well as several honorary doctorates.
