Linuxcare: Interview: Stallman The Coder

Dec 14, 1999, 20:48 (7 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Zack Brown for this link. ]

"On a recent visit to the Linuxcare offices in San Francisco, Richard Stallman spoke to our staff about the history of the Free Software Foundation, the future of GNU development, and why we should really be calling ourselves GNU/Linuxcare. After the talk, and a helping of the Friday company luncheon, RMS sat down with a few of our gurus to an impromptu interview."

The above paragraph has been changed to now read:
"Although most well known today as the father of Free Software and the GNU project, Richard Stallman, a coder of genius, is also the creator of some of the most important programs in the whole software world: GNU Emacs, the GNU C Compiler (GCC), and others. On a recent visit to the Linuxcare offices in San Francisco, Richard Stallman sat down with a few of our gurus to an in-depth interview about OS standards, the GCC, LISP, and a sneak peak at EMACS 21. After the interview, and a helping of the Friday company luncheon, RMS spoke to our staff about the history of the Free Software Foundation and the future of GNU development."

"Richard Stallman launched the GNU project in 1984 and created the now famous GNU General Public License. The Free Software Foundation is a tax-exempt charity that raises funds for work on the GNU Project."
