 Three Years of Free Software Activism

"GNU-Darwin is a Darwin-based operating system, but it also GNU-based, in that many thousands of free software titles are provided, all of which are compatible with the Darwin and Mac OS X. Software packaging tools were adapted from FreeBSD for the purpose of distributing the GNU part of the system and other free software items, but Darwin itself also includes many crucial GNU software titles, such as bash and GCC." Read the editorial at OSNews.com by one of the founders of GNU-Darwin.
