Mr. Stephen Fry introduces you to free software (Video)

johnsu01: « We've been working on this video for a few months now, and it's really exciting to have it finally published. Those of you who usually ignore my posts about software should take five minutes and watch this video, it's a nice explanation in a soothing accent of what it is that I'm on about all the time. »

Slashdot | Stephen Fry Helps GNU Celebrate 25th Birthday

Virgil Tibbs: « The GNU operating system is turning 25 this year, and the Free Software Foundation has kicked off its month-long celebration of the anniversary by releasing 'Happy Birthday to GNU,' a short film featuring the English humorist, actor, novelist and filmmaker Stephen Fry. In the five-minute film, Fry compares the free software operating system to 'good science' and contrasts it with the 'kind of tyranny' imposed by the proprietary software produced by companies like Microsoft and Apple that it replaces. He encourages people to use free GNU/Linux distributions like gNewSense and free software generally, for freedom's sake. »

The video is encoded in Ogg, a free an un-patent encumbered format that is really free to use. Of course you could go and download a free operating system too and rid yourself of the shackles and chains which Stephen so eloquently describes. »
