“If Microsoft ever does applications for Linux it means I’ve won.” -Linus Torvalds
“Revolution OS” is the documentary film about how, what is now known as the Open Source Software (OSS) movement, was started in the 80s by Richard Stallman. OSS grew so large that it not only challenged proprietary software, but by far surpassed it to become the dominant force in Operating System development today.
See how development of the GNU operating system and the Linux kernel is largely contributing to the spread of the most robust and free operating systems currently available, as well as of the spread of the internet as we know it today.
This movie is a geek’s delight! So if you love computers in any way, be sure not to miss this documentary about open source software’s creation and on-going growth throughout its history.
The film will screen at 8:30pm on Fri 21st of April in T-Marbouta’s Library upstairs.
