Richard Stallman in Costa Rica

,----[ Quote ]
| The best known GNU/Linux hacker Richard Stallman was in Costa Rica since 
| October 12th until October 13th, 2007. He spoke about the “free software”, 
| the GNU project and the work of the Free Software Foundation.  



Avoiding Ruinous Compromises

,----[ Quote ]
| The free software movement aims for a social change: to make all software
| free so that all software users are free and can be part of a community of
| cooperation. Every non-free program gives its developer unjust power over the
| users. Our goal is to put an end to that injustice.
| [...]
| It's no use going faster by taking the wrong road. Compromise is essential to
| achieve a large goal, but beware of compromises that lead away from the goal.


Richard Stallman looks back at 25 years of the GNU project

,----[ Quote ]
| On September 27, 1983, Richard M. Stallman announced his intention to found
| the GNU project in order to build a free operating system. Now, 25 years
| later, the Free Software Foundation is marking the anniversary of the
| announcement with a month-long celebration. Looking back at the last quarter
| century, Stallman expresses some guarded satisfaction with the growth of the
| free software movement, but also some bemusement about how it has grown more
| complex as it has faced new challenges from within and without, and an
| awareness of how far it still has to go to reach its goals.
