Part of the series: Linux Inlaws

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode our aging heroes host the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). Its president, Matthias Kirschner talk about the past, the present and the future of free and open source software not only from an FSFE perspective. Never mind how he got into computers in the first place. Also, different opinions about communism in general and its implementations (and the flaws of the first rounds of implementations) are touched upon. So historians, FLOSS users and enthusiasts, communists and free spirits: This is your episode! Plus: Ever wondered what the Towel Day is all about? Check out the second half of the episode! At our guest's request: Please note that this episode was recorded on June 1st 2021.

free speech

So free speech is ok unless the FSFE descides its not ok. Except for RMS's quircky behaviour he was never accused of doing anything illegal, he was merely excersing his right, endowed by our Creator, of free speech. His only fail was not realizing that the thought police had invaded the FSF. Down with Big Brother.
