Interview with Richard Stallman

There's an interesting interview with Richard Stallman over at

I think the authors are semi-amused at RMS's free software zealotry. Unlike most free software advocates, RMS does not believe proprietary software should exist, and doesn't himself use any of it. He believes that it takes away people's freedom.

RMS is also well-known for insisting that people call Linux systems "GNU/Linux" because Linux systems are shipped with the GNU glibc and other GNU libraries and tools. I don't think Linus agrees with this naming scheme.

There's also Linus's post explaining what he thinks of slashdot.org. Hilarious.
