Guest Lecture: Richard Stallman

File:Richard Stallman at Pittsburgh University.jpgRichard Stallman will be visiting the University of Lincoln on the 29th November 2013 to give an evening colloquium about the free software movement and the GNU Project.

Richard Stallman is best known for launching the GNU Project in 1983, to create a “Unix-like computer operating system composed entirely of free software”. This is the foundation of Linux as we know it (or more correctly, GNU/Linux). Today, he continues his work with the GNU Project and the Free Software Foundation.
