RMS at RIT

So last week Richard Stallman came to RIT to speak.  I went, and got some pics:

It was an interesting experience, I even got to shake his hand.

He spent a bit of time railing on Microsoft and Apple, and on Amazon too a little.  For those not familiar, RMS is quite the campaigner for freedom – check out his Wikipedia page for more of his accomplishments.  If he’s coming by your town I would say it’s worth going to hear his talk, very eye-opening.  I’m not quite ready to rip all the proprietary software off of my computers (though I do run Ubuntu for the most part, and most of what I do can be done of free software), but the points he has are very good.  Maybe someday all software will be free software.
