Sundance is currently playing Revolution OS, the independent film about the rise of linux. The usual cast of characters show up in all their nerdy glory and Stallman takes his usual digs at the open source movement (“it's not really free!”). I was disappointed that he didn't sing the free software song in his robes, but at least the song did show up in the credits. It was funny to see the movie almost go out on a high note, by covering IPOs at the peak of the bubble (including interviews with Rob Malda, who gets a spot in the IMDB because of it, dammit), but they saved it at the end, by including stock prices from summer of 2001. Interesting all around and a great snapshot of a time and of a movement.
I've heard good things about his movie, and nearly purchased it until i decided i wasn't teaching this bit of information any time soon.
