Richard Stallman

My work on free software is motivated by an idealistic goal: spreading freedom and cooperation. I want to encourage free software to spread, replacing proprietary software that forbids cooperation, and thus make our society better.

See :
Richard Matthew Stallman (RMS; born 16 March 1953) is the founder of the Free Software movement, the GNU project, the Free Software Foundation, and the League for Programming Freedom. He also invented the concept of copyleft to protect the ideals of this movement, and enshrined this concept in the widely-used GPL (General Public License) for software

RS on the death of Steve Jobs :

Stallman’s Law
While corporations dominate society and write the laws, each advance in technology is an opening for them to further restrict its users.

The height of tolerance is tolerating intolerance.
The height of freedom is the freedom to choose not being free.

Now we can view software freedom as 5 essential freedoms:

Freedom -1: The freedom to run any software you wish.
Freedom 0: The freedom to run that software as you wish.
Freedom 1: The freedom to modify that software as you wish.
Freedom 2: The freedom to redistribute that software as you wish.
Freedom 3: The freedom to redistribute your modifications as you wish
