Richard Stallman visits MandrakeSoft. Here's a report on Richard Stallman's talk at MandrakeSoft on the Linux-Mandrake forum site. "Stallman finished the 'serious part' of his speech by stating that 'freedom isn't granted, we have to fight for it', and 'Battle isn't won yet, it's only beginning', and asking for our help - primarily in helping the FSF to reach as many GNU/Linux users as possible, and evangelising the 'freedom of software' whenever possible."
