Open Source Revolution

Once the domain of programmers and tech-savvy hobbyists, open source software has hit the mainstream. How exactly did computer users go from living in a world of purchased programs to a world where many of the most sought after applications are free to use, free to copy, and free to modify? This video traces the open source movement in detail, from its earliest days to the present. Richard Stallman, founder of the Free Software Foundation, is profiled, and open source tools for education and business—Linux, Open Office, Firefox, and GIMP—are discussed.
