The movie runs for about an hour and a half, and we plan to start it right

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

    Microsoft fears GNU/Linux, and rightly so.  GNU/Linux and the Open
    Source & Free Software movements arguably represent the greatest threat
    to Microsoft's way of life.  Shot in cinemascope on 35mm film in Silicon
    Valley, REVOLUTION OS tracks down the key movers and shakers behind
    Linux, and finds out how and why Linux became such a potent threat.

    REVOLUTION OS features interviews with Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman,
    Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Brian Behlendorf, Michael Tiemann, Larry
    Augustin, Frank Hecker, and Rob Malda.  To view the trailer or the first
    eight minutes go to the ifilm website for REVOLUTION OS.
