"Richard Stallman.. With rms, I don’t even know where to start. He started the GNU project, which is a rather important part of the GNU/Linux operating system, in 1983 (that’s right: nineteen eighty-three!) and set up the Free Software Foundation in 1985. He wrote the original GNU C compiler—yes, the program used to transform programs from programming language to executable code. He spends most of his time being a political and software activist. If you want to see what dedication is, read his blog and see his beyond-hectic travelling schedule.
