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. Feel free to read more about him at :
