In an interview for News.com, Bill Gates speaks about Free Software and Stallman.
I think it’s worth reading it, esp. that Mr. Gates does not answer to the main question – about the open source. It’s worth mentioning also that couple of years ago he and Richard Stallman had some exchange of views and ideas. Check also Stallman’s interview for CNet, headline Bill Gates and other communists.
Perhaps we are not far away from the day when Bill Gates may acknowledge that thanks to free and open source the Internet is affordable and accessible.
