GNU, GPL, Open Source "This show features an interview with Richard Stallman, founder of the free software movement and the man who put the GNU into GNU/Linux. After introducing the concept of free software, Richard offers some trenchant criticism of two tech superstars: the Lord of Linux, Linus Torvalds, and Apple guru Steve Jobs. From there, we move into a discussion of the impact of free software - and freedom more generally - on the evolution of personal and global consciousness."

I really want to know. Really.

Why should I care about it? To paraphrase John Cleese: What has the FSM ever done for me?

I visited: http://www.gnu.org/

In the section: What is Free Software?

I don't need freedoms one to three and freedom zero comes with purchased software, at least enough for me to be able to do everything I need to with the software.
