Forty years of GNU and the free software movement

BOSTON, Massachusetts, USA -- September, 18, 2023 -- On September
27, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) celebrates the 40th
anniversary of the GNU operating system and the launch of the
free software movement. Free software advocates, tinkerers, and
hackers all over the world will celebrate this event, which was a
turning point in the history of computing. Forty years later, GNU and
free software are even more relevant. While software has become deeply
ingrained into everyday life, the vast majority of users do not have
full control over it.
