Hello! I'm from the Postgraduate Departmen of the ITCC University from Mexico, Really we need to contact with Richard Stallman, just for give us his opinion and answer us some questions about free software, How can I contact him? What's his real email? This help affects up to 19 universities from Mexico, Well, I hope you can help me, Really thanks, Best Regards, Ing. Julian Acosta Instituto Tecnologico de Cd. Cuauhtimoc Departamento de Posgrado
To contact him: 1- put a woodstock live CD 2- get rid of all water points 3- sacrifice a goat At this point, the feet-naked hippy should come with his flute ;-) Gilles NB: you're on the wrong mailing-list and it was too tempting. -- Gilles Chehade
You'd be better contacting the FSF rather than Stallman directly - don't you think that's overkill? He also may have conducted just one or two interviews and written a couple of articles - just google. Bear in mind that their favoured GPL 'free' software license is not free. It is effectively free as in beer, but not as in free speech. Their definition includes being forced to give away source code, which whilst I understand the viewpoint (of increasing free code), is by any measure a restriction of your freedom. BSD licenses, on the other hand, do not restrict what you can do, although it's good karma to contribute back when using a large amount of free code from others.  The GPL allows products to be sold, but seeing as this must include source code, after one sale it only needs someone with a compiler to distribute it freely (as in beer). Peter
That free beer analogy has never made any sense and never will. I honestly wonder why people keep repeating it.
I hope that in some /parallel/ universe beer is free and bsd is the most used license and *bsd is the most used and active operating system :)
Free beer is an important part of most village celebrations here in Germany. Schuetzenfest - lots of free beer, Feuerwehr - lots of free beer, Fruehlingsfest - lots of free beer... And the Bavarians might even have more reasons to give away free beer! (I remember one meeting of the GUUG - German Unix User Group - when they took all the attendees to the Augustiner Keller in Munich to get unlimited "Mass" of beer). So the question is - am I living in a parallel universe? reyk
Agreed, in a level IV multiverse at least (before you ask, we need a very good cosmologist to define `at least' here). But don't worry, BSDs are on a de Sitter universe even if some people (Linux kids) think the other way.
On Wed, 26 May 2010 07:32:58 -0500 Yes. One of my pet peeves. Free from **wut ? But I do think the BSD model best supports the interests of Liberty, and that's a bond that makes men less to be free of ;-)
Just talk a lot about open source and the Linux operating system. He'll show up.
Now he'll definitely come here, because you wrote "Linux" instead" of religiously correct "GNU/Linux".
No because you wrote GNU/Linux instead of GNU/Hurd :p -- Sylvestre Gallon
Do you mean Apache/BSD/GNU/IPL/MIT/SGI/X11/Linux, right?
Wasn't that SCO/Linux?
Actually it's the other way around - in my experience he's significantly more reluctant to visit if the organizers show a fondness for "open source" rather than "free software" and mentions "Linux" without "GNU/" prepended too often. But still the wrong mailing list. - P -- Peter N. M.

Yes, one of his minions will stumble across this thread while they are performing Google searches for him and deliver these most important advocacy results to him with freshly hand peeled and pitted grapes.
I really laughed when I read this and the discussion that followed You should probably read http://www.openbsd.org/mail.html You should also check your emails before you send them _________________________________________________________________ Your E-mail and More On-the-Go.

It's clearly spam.
