    What distro does Stallman use?

    I have always wondered this. At first I thought it might be Debian but he often bashes Debian for its use of non-free software it it's repositories. Does anybody know?

    He does his website on Emacs.

    Uhh, not suprising considering that he made emacs. Do you want him to do his website on vi?

    I know which distro he uses. Whichever one he wants. He's FREE to choose.

    Emacs, GCC and the GPL (GNU)

    Without him, we would be running the next proprietary operating system after windows instead of using free and open software.

    Not to say that he is Jesus or anything. I hear he is quite an arsehole.

    Considered by many (most?) who know of him to be the most important person in open source. Some people see him second to Linus, but frankly, I consider Stallman much more a key player than anyone.

    Stallman , Torvolds , etc etc are catalysts , the real key players are the thousands of users and developers out there .
