Required Viewing: Revolution OS

Revolution OS is a 2001 documentary film which traces the twenty-year history of GNU, Linux, open source, and the free software movement.

Directed by J. T. S. Moore, the film features interviews with prominent hackers and entrepreneurs including Richard Stallman, Michael Tiemann, Linus Torvalds, Larry Augustin, Eric S. Raymond, Bruce Perens, Frank Hecker and Brian Behlendorf.

Thanks for posting this... I'd never have come across this movie, or watched it, but as a dude committed to freedom it's a really great story.

I even liked Richard Stallman by the end of it! :)
