RimuHosting visit by Richard Stallman

Free and open source software are so important at RimuHosting.

Our servers would be pretty useless without the Linux kernel and free and open source applications we install on them.

We try to do our bit for 'software freedom' like http://blog.rimuhosting.com/2009/09/24/rimuhosting-does-software-freedom-day/
providing OSS develeoper discounts and sponsoring events like LCA2010 http://blog.rimuhosting.com/2009/12/08/rimuhosting-at-linuconf-2010/

But our efforts are nothing compared to some of the real leaders in free and open source software.  Among them is Richard Stallman.

Mr Stallman was in town the other week on a speaking engagement.  He must have heard about our famous Wednesday Beer o'clock and popped by for a bit of geeky conversation and food (and the wifi, of course).

  2. Emacs is still my favourite editor after more than 20 years - even though my Lisp skills have all but vanished. Thanks Mr GNU!
