Hall speaks to LinuxWorld.com: "Linux evangelism means going out and promoting the Linux operating system. This is different from promoting open source or even free software. While
I am a fan of both of those myself, I do not agree that all applications have to be open source, nor do I agree that all applications have to be freely available. I do
feel very strongly that all platform code necessary for an application to run (including compilers and even some debugging tools) should be both freely available
and open source."
