Due to a growing trend of users using linux, using open source software and then spitting in the faces of the developers, the community as a whole, the open source ecosystem, how it works and what this side of the fence stands for in comparison to the proprietary Microsoft windows operating system and proprietary software world.... I think we need to take a step back, get educated, acknowledge and appreciate how this wonderful operating system and open source ecosystem came into existence. Many of us take the history for granted and make uninformed criticisms with the mind set of a paying Microsoft Windows customer wanting the SAME experience, SAME technical direction and vision with an ideology that is thankfully completely and utterly incompatible with this view. If you don't like it or appreciate the diversity within the open source world then ask for a fucking refund and go back to using Windows, proprietary and adaware infected free software you whiny pathetic cunts. EnjoyI do not own the rights to this video and am not earning revenue for this video. More info below.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0308808/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolution_OS
the fact is there are a lot of hobbyists out there who have put a lot of time and effort into learning things and we more than happy to pass on their knowledge in programming Miller people f*** Bill Gates
I saw my friend using a smaller version of Linux on his Android. I believe it was called (Termux). Telling him I was interested in using a different type of os, he said it's to hard to just pick up and learn. I wonder if that's true.
Linus is so under rated in today's times. He truly deserves a lot more credibility than he gets now. I would just like to say thank you to him.
I love Richard Stallman, but Christ, he's impossible to interview.
I love the way Richard Stallman talk about "free software". <3 I write code myself and have been a Windows user since 3.1. Didn't know about another operativesystem until I was way to dependent of DirectX, Visual Basic and IIS. Is it to late to switch at age 35? :|
and who used it today ? Banks, KGB, CIA, etc ... Yeah, Free as in gratis, not Freedom.
These people are real heroes.
Subject: Libre Software vs Proprietary SoftwareDisclaimer: The author of this message doesn't work for either Libre Software movement or “Open Source”. And the following statements were based only on personal experience.Free/Libre in software means malicious Free program. A Free/Libre program is verifiable to be healthy and legit program code by Libre Software developers. Proprietary software in the other hand are non-libre program codes. Since proprietary software not verifiable by the libre software community, it might hold malicious codes which will harm your computer/device and might steal your personal data. Proprietary software is either a malware or a possible malware. Libre software continuously and collectively monitored by the Libre Software community, hence you can rest assured that your Libre programs whether you paid for or got it for gratis, will be faithful for your compute needs.Since 1983, Free Software Foundation and GNU project drew a thick line between Libre and Proprietary Software. Thanks for FSF members and Dr. Richard Stallman guidance and speeches. In the other hand, the so called “Open Source” clearly allowed Malicious non-Libre codes in their software packages. None-libre source code simply can't be verified to be malicious free program. The Revolution OS documentary shows clearly how “Open Source” Author allowed Proprietary software to be part of “Open Source” licensing including and not limited to Linux Kernel.Freedom is protected by its believers. The so called “Open Source” author obliviously does not believe in users privacy and freedom. Dr. Richard Stallman had the future vision to see enough what could happen if he allows non-Libre codes inside the GNU OS project. The Linux Kernel developer Mr. Linus Torvalds did a good job by releasing the Linux Kernel under GNU GPL license. We all appreciate Mr. Torvalds contributions to Libre Software movement, but through time, Mr. Torvalds agreed with “Open Source” guidelines to allow proprietary software in the Linux kernel itself. As a result, a non-libre Systems such Android became spying smart devices exploiting our privacy. There are malicious and spyware codes spreed on non-Libre GNU/Linux distros such as Android more than all windows and Mac devices combined. So, how can we verify a non-libre program installed in our phone? We simply can’t verify it, it’s proprietary software. We are free to trust the program by agreeing on its Terms and Conditions, but we can’t verify its code before agreeing. We all trusted our phones and computers at one point and the result was and still mega privacy exploitation. Please, I urge all of you to read more about Free Software Foundation and Dr. Richard Stallman principles if you care about freedom and privacy, where Libre Software is respected and verified using a very powerful and precise GPL licensing against non-Libre and proprietary software exploiting acts.We hope this message find its way to the right people in “Open Source” especially the Linux Kernel lead developer Mr. Torvalds, to take for once the right action against privacy exploitation used by proprietary software since “Open Source” allows it.

12:35 - The last time I saw that gate there were a bunch of screeching SJWs in front of it.
So Linux is just an operating system for nerd hipsters? I like it.
Thanks for the video, I was able to use it for my server rented from datasoft
Did Bruce Perens play Lt Commander Data?
And then the dot com bubble happened
Okay so when did they actually build/compile GNU with the Linux kernel? Would that count as the first "distro"? Where can I download that...?
The description is kinda harsh...lol
LOL that Microsoft letter to the computer club couldn't have been narrated in a more pejorative tone.. Im all for free software and contribute what I can to those whose softwae I use. In m I see RMS as not walking the talk. I'm having a hard time finding software he has created for modern computer tech he has released under his GNU license.
The kernel is the hardest part. The GNU HURD microkernel (not monolithic) was very bloated, like all GNU software, which is the worst sin for a kernel.
See what's explained at 22:30. People make money off GNU/Linux and associated products by giving the software away for free, but charging for professional tech support and custom programming for a client's needs.It's the razor and blades model!This is not to say it's a scam. But it is saying that for any computing platform to exist in this world, there must be a functioning capitalist model. The end result of this is that GNU/Linux remains a system for hobbyists on the desktop, but corporations have clearly had success applying it for servers. (You'd be paying an arm and a leg for technical administration on servers, anyway, so you might as well have the perfect OS tailored for your needs.)And then Amazon and Google figured out how to marry it with proprietary hardware for the Kindle and Android — things which Stallman openly detests, but Linus Torvalds is just fine about!
this 1080p60HD is amazing
