Album Notes
REVOLUTION OS tells the inside story of the hackers who rebelled against proprietary software and Microsoft to create Linux and the Open Source movement.

For the past two decades, a loosely organized group of computer hackers, neo-communists, and entrepreneurs has lead the charge in a technological revolution that is undermining Microsoft's monopoly and fundamentally changing the way software is developed and owned. The best known results of this revolution are the Linux operating system and the Open Source movement.

The documentary film REVOLUTION OS explores the Open Source movement's origins through original interviews with the its founding fathers, and depicts the grassroots nature of Linux and Open Source as they march into the mainstream.

Filmed in 35mm Cinemascope on location in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS includes interviews with the Finnish creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds, and other key figures like Richard Stallman, Brian Behlendorf, Bruce Perens, and Eric Raymond.

Shot in cinemascope on 35mm film in Silicon Valley, REVOLUTION OS depicts an unusual group of characters that are three-parts libertarian, two parts communist, and one-part bad garage band. Revolution OS stars Linus Torvalds - the creator of Linux, and Richard Stallman - the ideological godfather of the movement, and features interviews with high-tech luminaries like Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann, Larry Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda.
