||Synopsis: While Microsoft may be the biggest software company in the world, not every computer user is a fan of their products, or their way of doing business. While Microsoft's Windows became the most widely used operating system for personal computers in the world, many experts took issue with Microsoft's strict policies regarding licensing, ownership, distribution, and alteration of their software. The objections of many high-profile technology experts, most notably Richard Stallman, led to what has become known as "the Open Source Movement," which is centered on the belief that computer software should be free both in the economic and intellectual senses of the word. Eventually, one of Stallman's admirers, Linus Torvalds, created a new operating system called Linux, a freely distributed software which many programmers consider to be markedly superior to Windows. Revolution OS is a documentary that examines the genesis of the Open Source Movement, and explores and explains the technical and ... Written by Mark Deming, Rovi

My fourteen-year-old boy is very much into computers (that's hardly

So he wanted me to see "Revolution OS," a documentary about the Linux
operating system and the open source movement that spawned the increasingly
important competitor to both Microsoft and Apple.
This is a very interesting documentary which I, clueless as to the secrets
of operating systems, readily understood. I watched it with the barest
comprehension of Linux or the philosophy underlying the open source
Much credit to the filmmaker for not only explaining the seminal value of
open source - the commitment to free interchange of ideas with minimal
incorporation of legal protection for intellectual property - but for also
succinctly allowing contrasting values and competing personalities screen
time. This documentary is a very concise but excellent guide for the
uninitiated into a world usually the arcane preserve of specialists most
adept at talking to each other.
The Open Source movement is a work in progress threatened by the real risk
of those benefiting from openness legally protecting their own "added value"
and thus, in a sense, betraying their benefactors. Several of those
interviewed pursue their open source values almost as a creed, the
commitment to computers taking the place of more traditional
Anyone interested in a major intellectual counterpoint to the dominance of
both Microsoft and the role of law in insuring proprietary benefits for
innovators should see "Revolution OS": no manual required.
