development of the GNU operating system
(see www.gnu.org) in 1984. GNU is free
software: everyone has the freedom to copy it and redistribute it, as

basically the GNU operating system with Linux added, is used on tens
of millions of computers today. Stallman has received the ACM Grace

Frontier Foundation's Pioneer award, and the the Takeda Award for
