Documentary about GNU, Linux, Free Software, and the Open Source movement.

IMDB

Revolution OS Website

Director J.T.S. Moore on the point of view of the documentary "Revolution OS"
August 28, 2001 (original written for Tech TV interview)

"When I started making "Revolution OS," I basically had the same perspective on Linux and Open Source that I think most non-techies still have today. I was aware of Linux, but I didn't know anything beyond the fact that it was a type of operating system. And, I had no clue what the term Open Source meant.
(...)
At the same time, another more fascinating story became the dominant focus of the film. That was the story of Richard Stallman and his vision of Free Software, and how that vision lead to Linus Torvalds and the Linux operating system. From there the story became about a grassroots revolution that continually, through no grand design, kept battling one of the most powerful corporations on Earth: Microsoft. Thus, I had the classic underdog story.
(...)
"Revolution OS" is about the people who actually participated in the history they are discussing. It is not a film of talking heads reading pre-approved talking points. All the people who appear in "Revolution OS" are speaking of their own personal stories. Those stories together comprise the mosaic that tells the story of the rise of the Open Source movement. "

No spaces of course.

Or make a clickable URL picture = [ img ][ url=* ] filename [ /img ][ /url ]
Like = [ img ][ url=http://imdb.com/title/tt0308808/ ]http://members.lycos.co.uk/hhahscreens2/uploads/revos.jpg[ /img ][ /url ]

You can also make specific words (can have spaces), like titles links too = [ url=http://www.revolution-os.com/about.html ] Revolution OS [ /url ]

Spud: best code is:
Code: Select all
<a href="url">[img]imgurl[/img]</a>

Avoiding URL tags is best since its very buggy in phpbb and is just a simplified version of a href anyways :)

I downloaded this and its interesting in a very geeky kind of way. I don't know if its the same rip (i'll do a hash check when I get home) but the version I had was quite poor video quality despite its specs.

Will report back or if its the same, will post screens.
