Shot in cinemascope on 35mm film in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS depicts an unusual group of characters that are three-parts libertarian, two parts communist, and one-part bad garage band. REVOLUTION OS stars Linus Torvalds - the creator of Linux, and Richard Stallman - the ideological godfather of the movement, and features interviews with high-tech luminaries like Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann, Larry Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda.
