Richard Stallman interviewed on Kerneltrap

Richard Stallman

KernelTrap has a fascinating and lengthy interview with Richard Stallman.

If you don't know who this guy is, he's the one who founded the GNU Project in 1984, and the Free Software Foundation in 1985. He also originally authored a number of well known and highly used development tools, including the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC), the GNU symbolic debugger (GDB) and GNU Emacs. The interview covers a wide range of topics, from rms's early years, to his current role in the Free Software Foundation. He discusses the current state of GNU/Hurd, the problems with non-free software, and much more. Read it and see what the father of free software has to say.
