LWN.net (Linux Weeekly News) has featured an extensive interview with RMS covering from the Hurd to "open source" and the fight against the DMCA and the SSSCA. Worth a read.

[new] Good article (#1)

I liked this interview. LWN knew how to steer clear of the real hotbuttons, and we got some insight. I just finished reading Free as in Freedom, and I rather enjoyed it - it helped solidify my commitment to Free Software. I quit my job developing proprietary software for Microsoft Windows, and I'm hoping to start contributing (eventually) in a substantive way to the Community. I think RMS is a great leader of the community, whether he wants to be one or not.

Kids, kids, we can all try the exciting new toothpaste from Mars!

[new] HURD (#2)

I think that HURD is really starting to sound cool. I thin it's sorta like WINE or Mozilla where they didn't really seem to produce anything for a few years and everyone just assumed they were dead, then all of the sudden, they show up with a neat peice of software.

It'd still need a ton more features before it supplants Linux on my computer, but the microkernel design might make it really easy to get them (people can just sit around and hack on it without all the rebooting).

What I think would be totally cool is if they made it so you could run HURD under Linux, in a VM or something, or perhaps have Linux act as a pseudo-microkernel instead of Mach or something. That way people could work on HURD on their Linux machines.

BTW: what's up with all of the RMS stuff this week?
