Software Ghandi Cisco posts a Linus Torvalds interview where he says " There’s this myth that I did it because I wanted to be the Mahatma Gandhi of whatever. The 1990s." It's ironic because there is a Mahatma Ghandi of software--Richard Stallman. When I met Stallman recently, it was clear that he cared nothing for the material world and was single mindedly focused on liberating software. In fact, Linus's contribution to the world, GNU/Linux, is mostly GNU (which Stallman wrote).

Big Blue free more software IBM is releasing $40M of software to the open source world. They don't say which license they're using. If anyone knows, please email me at (include URL please)
