This is a very great hon­or and I’m proud, hon­ored, but not so lit­tle sur­prised to be here. But still, even though I’m not a trou­ble­mak­er, I may well not be an evan­ge­list, but I’m a real­ly real­ly stub­born lady.

presented by Dave Farber

I guess I’m sup­posed to say how his­toric things hap­pen, but what I’d like to do is actu­al­ly para­phrase a com­ment that is fair­ly tra­di­tion­al in math­e­mat­ics and was first taught to me by Dick Hamming, that I have done good things (I’m para­phras­ing) because I’ve stood on the shoul­ders of great peo­ple that pre­ced­ed me.

Richard Stallman’s Internet Hall of Fame 2013 Induction Speech

presented by Richard Stallman

So I decid­ed to fix that by devel­op­ing anoth­er oper­at­ing sys­tem and make it free, and it’s called GNU, but most the time you’ll hear peo­ple erro­neous­ly call­ing it Linux.
