Richard Stallman interview.

In an exclusive interview, Stallman discusses his views on free versus
proprietary and open source software, social networking sites and
privacy issues.

As founder of the Free Software Foundation, how would you define free

Free software means software that respects users' freedom. More
specifically it means you as a user have these four essential freedoms:

1) To run the program as you wish.
2) To study the source code and change it, and thus make the program
do what you wish.
3) To redistribute exact copies when you wish -- this is the freedom
to help your neighbour.
4) To distribute copies of your modified versions when you wish -- this
is the freedom to contribute to your community.
