"He's been called "intransigent" and an "arch-ideologue", even by his friends, but when it comes to clarity of vision, few hackers can compete with GNU Project founder Richard Stallman."

"But he has a knack for getting to the heart of things, and once you understand where he's coming from, the things he does make perfect sense."
"As founder of both the GNU project and the Free Software Foundation, Stallman has pursued his vision, the once-radical notion that software should be free to copy and improve, for nearly two decades now."
