LXer: Richard Stallman's GNU Manifesto is now 30 years old

Published at LXer:

In true leftist style, Stallman called it the GNU Manifesto. It was published in March 1985 in Dr Dobb's Journal of Software Tools, a venerable technology publication that shut shop in December last year after 38 years of publishing. It encapsulated a desire to create a free operating system, for use by all, one that the users could control. This desire grew out of the fact that UNIX source code was not being released after A. T. & T. was broken up and the the anti-trust decree under which it was operating became void. Stallman was not inspired by the path proprietary software development was taking.
