in 1984. The GNU/Linux system, basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens of millions of computers today. Stallman is also the creator of the GNU General Public License (GPL). For over twenty years, Stallman has promoted free software. More recently, through the Free Software Foundation, he led several campaigns against software patents, DRM and ACTA, to name but a few.
