Free Software Foundation
The Free Software Foundation or Foundation for Free Software is an organization created in October 1985 by Richard Stallman and other free software enthusiasts with the purpose of spreading this movement.
The Free Software Foundation (FSF) is dedicated to eliminating restrictions on copying, redistribution, understanding, and modification of computer programs. For this purpose, it promotes the development and use of free software in all areas of computing, but very particularly, helping to develop the GNU operating system.
In the beginning, the FSF used its funds mainly to hire programmers to write free software. Since the mid-1990s there are already many companies and individual authors who write free software, so FSF employees and volunteers have focused their work primarily on legal, organizational and promotional matters for the benefit of the user community of free software.
