Richard Stallman
Founder of GNU Project and Free Software Foundation
Richard Stallman launched the development of the GNU operating system 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.
Richard Stallman will speak about the goals and philosophy of the Free
Software Movement, and the status and history of the GNU operating system,
which in combination with the kernel Linux is now used by tens of millions
of users world-wide.
