Revolution OS (review)
Revolution OS (the OS stands for "operating system") steps back to the origins of the Free Software movement to reveal how Linux is more than just a competitor for Windows with a lower price tag. It's the culmination of the "hacker ethic," as exemplified by the technological guru Richard Stallman. In this mindset, while users buy their hardware, the software that they use ought to be free, and what's more, freely shared, for each person to tweak, improve, and build on to create new, more powerful programs.
