While Microsoft may be the biggest software company in the world, not every computer user is a fan of their products, or their way of doing business. While Microsoft's Windows became the most widely used operating system for personal computers in the world, many experts took issue with Microsoft's strict policies regarding licensing, ownership, distribution, and alteration of their software.

The objections of many high-profile technology experts, most notably Richard Stallman, led to what has become known as "the Open Source Movement," which is centered on the belief that computer software should be free both in the economic and intellectual senses of the word. Eventually, one of Stallman's admirers, Linus Torvalds, created a new operating system called Linux, a freely distributed software which many programmers consider to be markedly superior to Windows.

Revolution OS is a documentary that examines the genesis of the Open Source Movement, and explores and explains the technical and intellectual issues involved in a manner understandable to computer aficionados and non-techheads alike.

Tried early linux, Red hat etc.
I'm too old, it was too hard. Went back to Win 98, Loved Win 7. Stuck it out to the bitter end. Hated Win 10, seriously tried Linus mint and a few others, would have committed to Linux then but that genius Chris Titus came along with his Win 10 debloating magic. And life was good.
Like the new Linus lite for the older machines, simple and pretty. Currently being prodded to update by techy gamer friends who love the Win 11 eye candy. Meh.
Sick of Gates, Microsoft and the Google monster. Hope fully this documentary will rekindle the magic.
