The Free Software Foundation (FSF) announced plans to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the GNU operating system. The celebratory activities will include a 30th anniversary hackathon at MIT in Cambridge, MA, satellite events around the world, and ways for people to celebrate online.
A Web site has been launched to coordinate the festivities: https://gnu.org/gnu30
Thirty years ago this month, the founding of the GNU system sparked a conversation that has grown into the global free software movement. On September 27, 1983, a computer scientist named Richard Stallman announced the plan to develop a free software Unix-like operating system called GNU, for "GNU is not Unix." GNU is the only operating system developed specifically for the sake of users' freedom. Today, the GNU system includes not only a fully free operating system, but a universe of software that serves a vast array of functions, from word processing to advanced scientific data manipulation, and everything in between.
