Open and Free Software

photo1Today there was an event at KTH about “Open and Free Software”. The Free Software Foundation Europe,  and the Royal Institute of Technology organized a lecture with Dr. Richard Stallman.

Mainly the session was about the free software movement and the GNU/Linux operating system.

Richard Stallman spoke about the goals and philosophy of the Free Software Movement, and the status and history of the GNU operating system, which in combination with the kernel Linux is now used by tens of millions of users world-wide.

He has received honorary doctorates from the University of Glasgow, Free University of Brussels and Universidad Nacional de Salta. In 1990, he was the receiver of a Macarthur foundation fellowship and has been elected member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

You also watch a small video from the presentation. For the all open source events in KTH, please stay tuned. We will organize more solaris and java events very soon. Hope to see you all again.
