About Richard Stallman

Richard Stallman launched the free software movement in 1983 and started the development of the GNU operating system in 1984. GNU is free software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute it, as well as to make changes either large or small. The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of computers today.

Stallman has received the ACM Grace Hopper Award, a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Pioneer Award, and the the Takeda Award for Social/Economic Betterment, as well as several honorary doctorates.

  1. Merci pour le torrent!
    J’étais dans la salle mais c’est le genre de discours dont on ne se lasse pas :)

  2. Entre le “Ah, il faut que je parle en anglais ?!” et l’enchère à quarante-deux euros (^^), la conf était aussi intéressante que plaisante.

  3. Je n’ai malheureusement pas pu être présent ce jour là.
    Merci beaucoup d’avoir rendu disponible la conf.
    Est-ce qu’une version avec les questions existe et est disponible ?
