GNU is Not Unix

Submission + - An Overview on the Free Software Movement by RMS

Andareed writes: Richard M. Stallman , founder of GNU, the FSF, and the Free Software Movement discusses the past, present and future of the GPL. In particular, RMS discusses the new GPLv3 and how it applies to software patents and propriertary software. He also discusses what he sees as the future of Linux and Hurd. He attacks binary-only drivers in the linux kernel (read: NVIDIA and ATI) and insists that companies must release open-source Linux drivers or "suffer the wrath of the Free Software Movement".
