    Editor’s Note

    The waning days of the 20th century seemed like an Orwellian nightmare: laws
    preventing publication of scientific research on software; laws preventing sharing
    software; an overabundance of software patents preventing development; and enduser
    license agreements that strip the user of all freedoms—including ownership,
    privacy, sharing, and understanding how their software works. This collection of
    essays and speeches by Richard M. Stallman addresses many of these issues. Above
    all, Stallman discusses the philosophy underlying the free software movement. This
    movement combats the oppression of federal laws and evil end-user license agreements
    in hopes of spreading the idea of software freedom.
    With the force of hundreds of thousands of developers working to create GNU
    software and the GNU/Linux operating system, free software has secured a spot on
    the servers that control the Internet, and—as it moves into the desktop computer
    market—is a threat to Microsoft and other proprietary software companies.
    These essays cater to a wide audience; you do not need a computer science background
    to understand the philosophy and ideas herein. However, there is a “Note on
    Software,” to help the less technically inclined reader become familiar with some
    common computer science jargon and concepts, as well as footnotes throughout.
    Also it is important to note that many of the essays have been updated and
    revised from their originally published versions. And since every chapter has a
    verbatim copying notice on it, you are free to make and distribute copies of the
    text.
