"However, there exists a whole group of extremely talented
people who, despite the riches to be had, maintain that the
challenge lies not in making money but in writing elegant code that
will simply make computing more efficient and enjoyable."
"This noble, if financially foolhardy, approach has gathered
momentum over the last 10 years. Characters like Linus Torvalds,
who spearheaded the development of Linux, and Richard Stallman, the
founder - some might say saint - of the free software movement, are
now entering the realm of legend."
"Stallman will be in Ireland on February 6th to spread the
gospel at a Copyright Association of Ireland (CAI) conference. He
will be one of a number of speakers dissecting the relative merits
of Open Source code, which has legal protection as a result of
"copyleft" developments more than a decade ago."
