Interesting. Only 3 people out of around 100 in the #FOSDEM #Community devroom have seen the documentary "Revolution OS". Underscores my recent concerns that current #OpenSource people aren't very familiar with the movement's collective history.

@downey @remotenemesis You don’t need to watch *a* specific documentary to know about the history, you know? ;)

@downey @remotenemesis Oh, and also, there’s more to open source than just GNU. There’s also BSD.

@downey @remotenemesis You can read up on a lot of it. There’s also quite a few documentaries from 15 years ago - of which I can obviously no longer remember the name by now. But the point is that there is more than one way to learn about history, and it does not need to be that particular documentary ;)
