As a newb this movie has opened my eyes.
OK, this is a documentary about Open Source Software. Mainly UNIX derivitaves. BSD, GNU, and Linux. Who are the people?

Eric Raymond- “scruffy hacker” tells Microsoft “I’m your worst nightmare.” oh yeah also happened to write "The Cathedral and The Bazzar"

Bruce Perens- Author of “Open Sorce Definition”- "We want to get the software to work so we sacrifice the intellectual property rights”

Richard Stallman- MIT 1971- Founder GNU Project. “The Incompatible timesharing system” No Passwords on original systems so admins couldn’t control them. Someone there yesterday shouldn’t control what we do today. Original password hack was to hack peoples passwords and send the email that said "I see you have chosen is blah,blah why don't you just make it hitenter that's just as good"
Says GNU is a hack because GNU stands for GNU is not Unix becaues UNIX was proprietary.

Linus- yes that Linus “You are never supposed to see an OS. People don’t use an OS the use programs.”

Plus quite a few more, those were the most memorable.

To anyone who wants to know the history of LINUX, BSD, or any open source software that explains even where the GNU Public Licenses come form this is the movie.

I feel that much less a noob for watching it.

Well Ice it is about the development of operating systems, and about a bunck of geeks, you have to take it for the information, that's why I liked it, and it put a face on the names you just read about.

It's a great movie if you're in the middle of 50 things and need background noise wink ... Myself I didn't watch it, i listened to it as I was working wink ...

I tried to watch it at 3am laying in bed, it did certainly help me drift off wink

Ya i guess, there was some cool new information i learned, i allready knew how half of the people looked in that movie.

The information was pretty cool, but still a boaring video lol.

But overall, pretty informative
