GNU, GPL, Open Source It's been a while since we caught up with Stallman. But a couple months ago we took a look around at what's happening with law, politics and technology and realized that he maybe perhaps his extremism and paranoia were warranted all along. So when we were contacted by an Iranian Linux publication and asked if we would like to publish an English translation of a recent interview they had done with Stallman, I thought that it was a particularly rich opportunity.

Other than rubbish you spoke about Sanity.

Of course how someone acts affects their viewpoint. If you are speaking about ethics, it is entirely about somebodies outlook.

The reason he created the GPL was because the MIT hacker culture was dying.

Jaron Lanier used to live with him and was utterly dismayed when Stallman announced he was going to make a "free" unix clone.
