Happy Start of Year 26 of the GNU Project

"I could have made money [by joining the proprietary software world], and perhaps amused myself writing code. But I knew that at the end of my career, I would look back on years of building walls to divide people, and feel I had spent my life making the world a worse place." Richard Stallman, GNU Project

Tomorrow marks the end of the 25th anniversary year of the GNU Project and it's been quite a year! Here's some of the highlights sent out in today's Free Software Supporter newsletter:

As I said in a previous post, without the FSF the free software movement from which we all benefit today wouldn't exist. The FSF tirelessly fights software patents, DRM, and a number of other important issues because they believe free software is vital to a truly free society. I couldn't agree more.

Here's to another 25 years of the GNU Project, and a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved with GNU and the FSF for making the world a better place through their commitment to free software.
